Two suspected drunken drivers, one with a suspended license from a previous offense, were facing charges today following their stop
at a Chula Vista saturation patrol, police said.
Officers stopped 38 drivers during the Friday night patrol held to raise public awareness, lower the number of drunken or drugged drivers and to ensure motorists were properly licensed, a Chula Vista Police Department statement said.
In addition to the two suspected drunken drivers who were arrested, officers also arrested a passenger who had an outstanding warrant stemming from a drunken driving charge, police said in the statement.
A pedestrian was cited for suspicion of possession of drug paraphernalia and an open alcohol container, and a driver was cited for driving with a suspended license, police said.
Officers also recovered a stolen vehicle during the patrol, police said.
The patrol was funded by the California Office of Traffic safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
