DUI checkpoint on West Kettleman Lane nets no arrests


Lodi police didn’t arrest anyone during its weekend DUI-driver’s license checkpoint, which took place from 7 p.m. Saturday to 2:30 a.m. Sunday in the 1500 block of West Kettleman Lane.

However, officers cited eight drivers for operating an unlicensed vehicle or for driving with a suspended or revoked license, according to police Sgt. David Griffin.

Nine citations were issued at the checkpoint, three vehicles were towed away and one was impounded, Griffin said. Officers screened 699 vehicles.

Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public, Griffin said.

The checkpoint was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
