One arrested at Poway DUI checkpoint
One person was arrested for driving under the influence at a DUI checkpoint in Poway Friday night. The checkpoint was conducted between 6 p.m. and midnight Aug. 31 in the 14300 block of Poway Road by deputies from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Poway Station.
Deputies screened 682 vehicles of the 702 that passed through the checkpoint. Twenty-one vehicles were sent to the secondary screening area so the driver could be screened for intoxication or have their license status checked.
Citations were issued to three drivers: one for driving on a suspended license for a DUI-related suspension; one for driving outside the provisions of his or her license; and one for driving without a valid driver’s license. Two vehicles were towed.
The checkpoint was funded through a grant by the California Office of Traffic Safety.
