Deputies arrested 54 on these charges: 26 on warrants; 10 for operating a vehicle while intoxicated; three for possession of marijuana or paraphernalia; two each for possession of a controlled substance, battery, resisting law enforcement and disorderly conduct; and one each for burglary/theft/receiving stolen property, minor consumption and/or possession of alcohol, driving while suspended, trespass, public indecency, invasion of privacy and public intoxication.
