Ten people were arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, two others were given tickets and 11 vehicles were impounded at a drunken driving checkpoint that wrapped up early Sunday, San Diego police said.
More than 1,000 vehicles passed through the checkpoint in the 1500 block of First Avenue between 10 p.m. Saturday and about 3 a.m. Sunday morning, San Diego police Officer Mark McCullough said.
“We stopped a total of 1,005 vehicles, evaluated 27 people, made 10 arrests for suspicion of driving under the influence, cited two other people for other violations and impounded 11 cars,” said McCullough.
Funding for the operation was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
