        Longview Police will be on the lookout for drunk drivers in a special two day operation. Tonight and tomorrow, Longview police will have additional officers on patrol. It's part of a DWI task force. Officers also warn that if you are stopped driving drunk, you may not be the only person in trouble.

     Police say providing alcohol to "minors" carries criminal charges that could result in a 4-thousand dollar fine and up to a year in jail. Bob Hallmark reporting.
