Six drivers were arrested over the weekend on suspicion of driving under the influence at a checkpoint in Newport Beach. Two additional arrests were made, but they were not related to DUI.
The checkpoint was held on the northbound side of Newport Boulevard at Finely Street from about 9 p.m. Saturday until about 3 a.m. Sunday. The location was chosen based on its proximity to bars and restaurants. It was paid for with a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
All motorists passing through the checkpoint were given a brochure about driving under the influence.
