Fresno Police encountered at least one unusual St. Patrick's Day partier as they went after drivers who had too much to drink.During the evening, police also went to several night spots and dropped off warning signs, letting people know they were watching bars and clubs. Other officers patrolled the streets, looking for drunk drivers. "We're hopeful that with this type of information that people will do the honorable thing and either get a taxi cab or designated driver," said Eric Eide with the Fresno Police Department.

One of last night's more unusual arrests happened near a police substation. A man wearing only his underwear was found passed out behind the wheel, after apparently hitting several parked cars. He was taken into custody near 4th street and bulldog lane.
