CHP: 55 arrested for DUI in San Diego over holiday weekend

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - California Highway Patrol officers in San Diego County arrested 55 suspected drunken drivers from Friday evening until 6 a.m. Monday, three fewer than during the same time period last year, according to the CHP.

Statewide, CHP officers made 1,133 suspected drunken driving arrests over the start of Memorial Day weekend, down from the 1,161 arrests made on freeways and on roads in unincorporated areas during the same time period last year, the CHP reported.

Law enforcement officers from agencies across the state reported 15 fatalities between 6:01 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. today, but none of those were in San Diego County, the CHP said.

No local fatalities were reported during the same time period in 2012, and 11 were reported elsewhere in the state last year, authorities said.
