Cross Lanes , Kanawha County , West Virginia
As we ring in the new year, it's not uncommon to have a little fun while doing so.
But law enforcement everywhere are out looking for those who may have had a little too much fun.
And they're doing so all in the name of keeping you safe.
Kanawha County Deputies were patrolling the roads in full force.
And like many other police departments across the state, deputies are on high alert as people everywhere celebrate the new year.
"The biggest problems are usually disturbances, domestic types," said Deputy Jamie Miller, "also all of them usually stem from alcohol related."
Miller, along with Deputy Dickerson, have been patrolling the Cross Lanes area.
And it didn't take long before they received calls about some folks partying a little too hard.
"So far we've had a couple noise complaints," said Miller, "I've also dealt with a person intoxicated in public. It hasn't been too busy yet but unfortunately we expect that to pick up throughout the night."
And for those who plan on drinking, Deputy Miller says there's one rule to follow.
"If you're out night and you're out drinking, I suggest you to find a designated driver or call a cab. They're only a phone call away. No drinking and driving."
