The Mississippi Highway Patrol releases its stats from the Thanksgiving weekend.

Officials say Troop J, which covers the WDAM service area, arrested six people on DUI charges and three others on drug charges.  Thirteen motorists were pulled over for not wearing their seat belts.  Also, Troop J investigated 13 collisions – one  of them resulted in an injury.

There were no fatalities on the Pine Belt's highways.  However, two people died elsewhere in the state during the Thanksgiving holiday travel period, which ended late Sunday night.
