Costa Mesa police arrest 3 at DUI checkpoint

Three people suspected of driving under the influence were arrested at a DUI checkpoint, Costa Mesa police said Monday.

Police said 756 vehicles passed through the checkpoint at Bristol Street and Randolph Avenue between 7 p.m. Friday and 1 a.m. Saturday.

Of the hundreds of screened vehicles, six were impounded or stored, and two were released at the scene to drivers with valid drivers' licenses.

Twelve drivers were given field sobriety tests, which resulted in one arrest for an outstanding warrant, two on suspicion of drunk driving, and one suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs. Eleven drivers were cited for driving with revoked or suspended licenses.

Background checks were also performed on 18 drivers to check their driver's license statuses.
