Eight DUI arrests made near the Del Mar Racetrack

Posted: Updated:

DEL MAR (CNS) - Eight suspected drunken or drugged drivers were arrested at or near the Del Mar Racetrack between the start of the 76th season of thoroughbred racing and early Friday.

Deputies and police officers from several law enforcement agencies fanned out around Del Mar and in the nearby portions of Encinitas, San Diego and Solana Beach in search of inebriated drivers, sheriff's Sgt. David Cheever said.

The seven teams of deputies and police officers conducted 47 traffic stops between 4 p.m. Thursday and 1 a.m. Cheever said seven suspected drunken drivers were arrested during the patrols, along with one motorist suspected of being under the influence of drugs.

The patrols were funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
