MILLEDGEVILLE —  

Georgia state troopers arrested 321 people on charges of driving under the influence during the New Year's holiday travel period, which began at 6 p.m. Friday at 6 p.m. and ended at midnight Tuesday.

That compares to 262 arrests for impaired driving during the 78-hour New Year's holiday period a year ago.

The state patrol announced the DUI numbers early Wednesday morning.
