Drunk driving arrests to show up on Twitter

Montgomery County District Attorney plans to announce DUI arrests between Xmas and New Years on his Twitter page.   This CNET article turned me on to what appears to be a Texas trend of tweeting arrests.  Montgomery County just focuses on DUIs but Denton police posts all arrests though not names just the mug shots.

Denton’s approach seems fairer as why should more shame be applied to those arrested for DUIs’ than other types of arrests?
