CHULA VISTA (CNS) - Ten motorists are facing drunken driving charges following a multi-agency crackdown targeting repeat offenders in Chula Vista, Imperial Beach and other South Bay areas, authorities said.
The motorists -- whose names were not immediately released -- were arrested between Saturday and Monday during three separate operations, said Chula Vista police Officer Rusty Nelson.
One of the 10 motorists was also arrested on suspicion of child endangerment because three young children were in the offender's vehicle, Nelson said.
In addition to the DUI arrests, 37 vehicles were confiscated from drivers without valid licenses and impounded, and another 23 drivers were cited for various violations, Nelson said.
The operations were conducted by personnel from the Chula Vista, National City, Coronado and San Diego police departments, as well as from the San Diego County sheriff's and probation departments.
