Last month, we advised our blog followers that the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office would be conducting a DUI wolf pack operation, in conjunction with other local law enforcement agencies. The operation took place throughout St. Petersburg, Clearwater, and surrounding areas from 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 5th until 5:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 6th, 2015.
