We are staying near Orient Beach. When leaving the beach for the day several people have been pulled over by the local police and had to do a breathalyzer. 2 girls were taken to the station.
Also a couple was stopped at 9:30 in am and had to show drivers license, proof of rental car info, asked were they are staying, room #, where they live etc. When the couple asked why they were stopped the police just said "we are just checking"
