Six drivers were cited for impaired driving Friday night at a sobriety checkpoint on the Anthony Wayne Trail in front of the Toledo Zoo.

During the operation, which ran from 9 p.m. to midnight, Ohio Highway Patrol troopers and Toledo police questioned 628 drivers.

Sixteen of those were checked more closely for impairment, with six arrested on charges of driving while impaired, a highway patrol news release stated.

Perimeter patrols also cited three more drivers for impaired driving. Agents from the Ohio Investigative Unit participated in the effort, checking nearby tavern liquor permits.
