CHP reports on Memorial Day weekend DUI arrests

LAKE COUNTY – The California Highway Patrol had a busy weekend, making several arrests for driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs.


The CHP held a sobriety checkpoint from 6 p.m. Saturday to 2 a.m. Sunday. The checkpoint was located along Highway 53, north of Highway 29, according to CHP's Ukiah dispatch.


Officer Josh Dye of the CHP's Clear Lake office reported that officers stopped 507 vehicles, administered 14 field sobriety tests, made four DUI arrests, impounded two vehicles for 30 days each, and cited four people for driving while unlicensed.


“All in all it was a pretty good checkpoint,” Dye said in an e-mail statement.


In addition to the checkpoint, Dye reported there were eight other DUI arrests from Friday through Monday.


Two of those arrests were for individuals involved in two separate crashes – one on Friday and one on Monday.


Two other crashes during the holiday weekend – both on Saturday – were not DUI-related, according to statistics Dye provided.


The CHP also made one arrest for public intoxication and another for a warrant during the weekend, Dye reported.
