Police Bulletin: Midweek partying leads to arrests

Pleasanton's Cinco de Mayo celebration may have been a hit with most, but for Pleasanton police, it ended with a string of arrests for public drunkenness and two DUIs.

Police reports show one arrest for public drunkenness in the 600 block of Main Street before the party even began. Pleasanton police Sgt. Robert Leong said that arrest was someone known to police already, and not one of the partiers at the celebration.

Two people were arrested on DUI charges before midnight, one at 8:48 p.m. in the 2500 block of Stanley Boulevard and the other at 9:54 p.m. in the 5800 block of Owens Drive. That person was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

Another public drunkenness charge was issued at 10:19 in the 500 block of Main Street, not long after local merchants had shut down their booths.

The arrests continued until nearly 2 a.m., with three people charged with public drunkenness - one at 12:28 a.m. at the intersection of Hopyard Road and Inglewood Drive; another at 12:51 a.m. at the intersection of Deer Oaks Lane and Bernal Avenue; and the final one at 1:55 a.m. in the 500 block of Main Street.

"Being on a weekday night, we would not normally see this," Leung said.
