TULSA, OK -- A rash of drunk drivers were detained overnight by Tulsa Police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers.

Police officers found the driver a short time later stumbling around near 36th and Norfolk.  He too was arrested for DUI and taken to jail. 

Shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday, Oklahoma Highway Patrol troopers stopped a car on I-44 near Peoria.  Troopers say the driver was driving suspiciously.
