Valentine's Day Weekend DUI Checkpoints Result in OC Arrests

Valentine’s Day fell on a Saturday of a three-day weekend this year, and for many that meant more time to celebrate with loved ones. Due to the fact that couples and singles like to visit restaurants and bars, and enjoy a few drinks during the holiday weekend, law enforcement across Orange County were on high alert for drunk and impaired motorists.

During the past weekend, OC law enforcement officials conducted a number of DUI saturation patrols involving an increased presence of officers. These officers were looking specifically for drivers who displayed signs of impairment. Additionally, officers in various parts of the County also set up checkpoints throughout the weekend to stop and arrest motorists who may have been drinking too much during their celebrations.

During one sobriety checkpoint set up in San Clemente last Friday night, a 29-year-old man failed to stop when approaching the checkpoint and collided with barriers officers had set up. According to officials, no deputies or bystanders were injured and the suspect was taken into custody under suspicion of DUI. That particular checkpoint screen 523 cars and administered field sobriety tests to 10 drivers on Friday night. Other OC agencies have also reported DUI arrests and checkpoint statistics over the 3-day weekend.

Routine efforts of increasing DUI enforcement help officers raise awareness that they are aggressively enforcing DUI laws. The same holds true in the local court system, where accused individuals face harsh penalties. If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI in Orange County, working with an experienced defense attorney could make the difference in your case.
