SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Twenty-two people were arrested at a drunken driving checkpoint and weekend saturation patrol in San Diego, police said Sunday.
San Diego Police worked with the San Diego County Probation Department, focusing last night's patrol on finding drunken drivers already on probation for drunken driving or who have outstanding warrants for alcohol-related offenses, Officer Mark McCullough said. Three arrests of suspects wanted with outstanding warrants were made, and one arrest was made for a person violating the terms of his probation.
Located in SDPD's Central Division area, the drunken driving checkpoint saw 1226 cars pass through. Of those vehicles, 18 drivers were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, McCullough said. Additionally, 19 cars were impounded, one citation was given out for a license violation and one citation was given out for driving with an open alcohol container in the vehicle.
