They arrested 99 motorists for impaired driving, 28 people for various drug offenses, and 72 others for criminal violations.

There were two stepped-up operations in place: Operation SHOWBOAT, focused on Route 50 from Anne Arundel County to Ocean City, Route 301 in Kent and Queen Anne's counties, and Route 13 in Wicomico, Somerset, and Worcester Counties. These are busy routes during the summer's first holiday weekend, and the operation resulted in 691 speeding citations and 91 additional citations for other violations, such as seat belt and cell phone infractions.
