The multi-agency patrols around the seaside racetrack, and in Del Mar, Encinitas, San Diego and Solana Beach got underway at 5 p.m. Thursday, according to sheriff's Sgt. David Cheever.
The 14 teams of deputies and officers stopped 183 vehicles between Thursday evening and 2 a.m. Friday and made 13 suspected drunken driving arrests, including one driver who was found to be in possession of brass knuckles, Cheever said.
The patrol officers also cited one person for possession of marijuana and ticketed 50 others for various violations, Cheever said. Four vehicles were impounded.
