MINEOLA - The Nassau County District Attorney's Office says 22 convicted drunken drivers have been arrested again for allegedly trying to bypass their ignition interlock device.

According to District Attorney Kathleen Rice, the suspects were rounded up during a two-week sting operation. She says most of the offenders were driving to meet their probation officers when they were caught without the device.

Under Leandra's Law, which was enacted last summer, anyone convicted on a DWI charge is required to have ignition interlock installed. It works as a Breathalyzer and will prevent a vehicle from starting if the driver has been drinking.
