DUI arrests down from last year's Memorial Day weekend

 

The California Highway Patrol has arrested 196 drivers in the Bay Area between Friday and early today for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, according to a CHP sergeant.

Last year the CHP netted 209 DUI arrests during the same reporting period, between 6 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. today, CHP Sgt. Trent Cross said.

Statewide, the CHP has arrested 1,296 drivers for suspected DUIs, down from last year's statewide total of 1,301 over the same time slot, according to Cross.

The CHP has reported five fatal crashes in the Bay Area during the maximum enforcement period, up from last year's two fatalities, Cross said.

The CHP reporting period ended at midnight Monday.
