A deputy public defender with San Joaquin County was arrested Thursday on suspicion of driving under the influence with a suspended license, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Paul Schultz, 57, crashed a 2002 white Honda Civic into a ravine alongside the Crosstown Freeway at about 6 p.m. He was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and a controlled substance, Officer Angel Arceo said. Arceo said the controlled substance could not be identified until the results of a toxicology report come back.

The Civic is allegedly owned by the county, according to the CHP, and suffered only minor damage. Schultz was released early Friday from San Joaquin County Jail. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Nov. 17.

Schultz did not return phone messages left at his office seeking comment.

They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
