Two motorists were arrested for alleged drunken driving during an overnight sobriety checkpoint in Perris, the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said today.
A total of 1,072 vehicles passed through the checkpoint deputies set up Friday night at Perris Boulevard and Commerce Drive. Of those vehicles, 150 were directed to another area of the checkpoint and eight drivers performed field sobriety tests, the department reported.
Two drivers did not pass their tests and were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving. Fourteen drivers were cited for driving without a license and 12 others were cited for operating a vehicle with a suspended license, sheriff’s officials said.
Eighteen vehicles were impounded and towed, according to the department.
