Police DUI checkpoint yields record 24 arrestsAugust 25, 2007 No Comments
The San Diego Police Department arrested a record 24 people for driving under the influence Friday, August 24 at a checkpoint. The previous record was 16 at a checkpoint in 2004.
In each arrest, the driver’s vehicle was impounded. Three passengers were also arrested for being drunk in public.
It should be noted that this record took place on a Friday non-holiday weekend. My thought is that most of the people caught probably were drinking in our business district rather than on the beach seeing how this happened on a weekday. Would you agree?
Thank you San Diego Police Department for your aggressive enforcement in Pacific Beach!Checkpoints, Drunk Drivers
