Laguna Beach PD Arrest Alleged Drunk Driver At Checkpoint

June 12, 2016 Comments Off on Laguna Beach PD Arrest Alleged Drunk Driver At Checkpoint posted by: admin

A source within the Laguna Beach Police Department released that two people were detained at a recent DUI checkpoint. Approximately 1,000 motorists drove through the checkpoint throughout its hours of operation, according to a report by the LA Times.

One person was arrested after they chose not to stop, but instead drove through it.  The car was eventually pulled over and the driver was taken into custody.  It was later determined that he was not impaired, but had a mental disability. He was released without needing to post bail bonds and was given a citation for misdemeanor evading.

Another driver was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving, officers said. The name of that motorist was not released to the press.  Most people who are arrested and booked at the Laguna Beach Jail on misdemeanor DUI charges are released from custody on their own recognizance.
