JACKSON, Tenn.- The Tennessee Highway Patrol announced Thursday that there was one alcohol-related fatality during the 16 county "No Refusal" DUI enforcement effort over the Thanksgiving holiday period.

Additionally, five suspects refused to take blood alcohol level tests and warrants were then obtained for a sample under the 'No Refusal" law.

This campaign was a coordinated effort by the THP, the Governor's Highway Safety Office, local district attorneys and various local and state law enforcement agencies.

In the two West Tennessee counties that participated in the "No Refusal" enforcement, Chester and Weakley, there were no DUI arrests.
