ANCHORAGE - Weekend privileges for some Fort Richardson soldiers are being suspended because of the high number of driving-under-the-influence charges they're accumulating.
KTVA-TV reports a Fort Richardson official says the charges started stacking up after soldiers began returning from Afghanistan in January.
At first, the order affected all soldiers on base.
Now, while two brigades have had their privileges restored, four brigades still have to report for duty this weekend.
Anchorage Police Lt. Dave Parker will be giving soldiers a speech on the average $20,000 cost and consequences of receiving a DUI.
