SLO sobriety, driver's license checkpoint nets sole DUI arrest

A driver’s license and sobriety checkpoint along Foothill Boulevard in San Luis Obispo on Friday night led to the arrest of a single suspected drunken driver after officers screened 517 vehicles, the CHP reported.

Two drivers were cited on suspicion of driving without a valid license and two vehicles were impounded at the checkpoint, which was set up from 8 p.m. to midnight north of Chorro Street, CHP said.

Seven drivers were given field sobriety tests, but deemed not to be drunk, according to the CHP.

It was the third such driver checkpoint at or around Cal Poly this month conducted by multiple law enforcement agencies.
