Lodi police officers arrested five people on suspicion of drunken driving, cited 11 more and had nine vehicles towed during Saturday night’s DUI/driver’s license checkpoint in the 200 block of East Lodi Avenue, according to police Sgt. Chris Jacobson.
Officers screened 478 vehicles and conducted 11 field sobriety tests. Seven unlicensed and suspended drivers were ordered to court, Jacobson said.
The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
