Indiana State police say officers issued more than 750 traffic citations and arrested 65 people on criminal and alcohol-related charges during a diesel truck show at the Vigo County Fairgrounds in Terre Haute.

Sgt. Joe Watts said Sunday that officers arrested 27 people for driving under the influence at the Scheid Diesel Extravaganza on Friday and Saturday nights. They arrested 15 others on other alcohol-related offenses and 18 people for felonies and misdemeanors.

Watts says the arrests this year compare with last year's totals of more than 575 traffic tickets, 39 DUI arrests, 45 criminal arrests and 38 other arrests on alcohol-related charges.

The event draws thousands of diesel truck enthusiasts for truck and tractor pulls and related events.
