MILWAUKEE -- Those planning to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in the Milwaukee area by having a few drinks are being put on notice--drunk driving will not be tolerated. 

Sheriff David Clarke will lead a press conference Friday morning to let motorists know that they'll be seeing more deputies on area highways now through Monday, and drivers pushing their luck too far could end up behind bars.

In addition to the focus on Operation Drive Sober, Sheriff Clarke will also talk about the eight deputy squads struck by drivers since December.

CBS 58's Marshanna Hester has a preview.
