Columbus police will staff an OVI checkpoint in northwest Columbus Friday night.
The checkpoint will begin at 9 p.m. and continue until 3 a.m. Saturday. on Sawmill Road, south of Martin Road, in Columbus.
The officers say they want to impress on those who will be drinking alcohol that they should plan for a designated driver or other ways to get around.
A checkpoint on or near the OSU campus is also being planned.
A 45-year-old man was arrested by Columbus police Monday, charged with raping a woman.
