CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — We've received numbers from the Corpus Christi Police Department on how many citations were issued for illegal fireworks on New year's Eve.

We asked for them after a viewer sent us this skyline video of the city on Tuesday night.

And you can see dozens if not hundreds of illegal fireworks being set off.

So how many people were cited?

Police tell us they issued five citations for illegal fireworks use on New Year's Eve.

They also tell us they made six DWI arrests that night as well.
