Halloween DUI sweep nets four arrests

By From page A5 | November 02, 2012

Between 8 p.m. Saturday and 3 a.m. Thursday, the Davis police deployed officers for a total of 12 hours specifically to target suspected drunken drivers.

During that time, those officers made 23 vehicle stops, evaluated three drivers for possible DUI and took one driver into custody for suspected DUI. Patrol officers not assigned to the DUI efforts stepped up their efforts and also made three other DUI arrests, police reported.

There were no reported alcohol-related collisions during this time period.

This operation was supported by the AVOID program — a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
