Weekend DUI Checkpoint Catches -- Wait for it -- Alleged Drunk Driver!
|No, that's not former Gov. Gray Davis|
Also, due to the checkpoint's official tally being forwarded around the San Francisco Police Department like an e-pinball, we didn't get the data until roughly a week later. We received a pleasant surprise yesterday when the police forwarded us a tally from the Aug. 29 DUI checkpoint -- before we even asked for it -- and, lo, they nabbed a potential inebriated motorist.
Here's the data for the Geary and Steiner affair:
Vehicles that went through the checkpoint: 2,345;
Field sobriety tests administered: 25;
Preliminary alcohol screening tests administered: 3;
DUI arrests: 1;
Other criminal arrests: 0;
Impounded vehicles: 7 (four unlicensed drivers; two drivers with suspended or revoked licenses; one DUI arrest)
