Lodi police arrested four people during a DUI/driver’s license checkpoint held during the weekend in the 1900 block of West Kettleman Lane.

Officers arrested three people on suspicion of drunken driving and one for possessing outstanding warrants, according to Lodi Police Sgt. David Griffin.

Officers screened 893 drivers at the checkpoint between 7 p.m. Saturday and 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Griffin said. Eleven field sobriety tests were administered.

In addition to the four arrests, police cited nine drivers for operating an unlicensed vehicle and one who allegedly had a suspended or revoked license. Four vehicles were towed away.

Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for finding drunken and drugged drivers, Griffin said. The checkpoint also deters drivers, he added.

The purpose of the checkpoint is to lower DUI deaths and injuries, Griffin said.

    Why don't you just report that three drivers were arrested on suspicion of DUI and eleven, probably minorities again looking at the poor location of the same old Kettleman Lane spot, were cited for minor misdemeanor traffic citations or warrants. I see the same deadhead must be picking the off nights and minority nabbing locations rather than the evenings of the big wine busts or anywhere near the downtown area where every wino, addict and alcoholic hang out. You should be proud of yourself Mr. Planner?

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. 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?
