PRESS RELEASE

INCIDENT: Specialized Enforcement Detail Nets 9 Drunk Drivers
DATE/TIME: March 6, 2010 / 8:00 P.M. – 3:00 A.M.
LOCATION: Downtown Oxnard
PREPARED BY: Officer James Langford

DETAILS: 

A directed patrol of downtown Oxnard late Friday night into early Saturday morning resulted in the arrest of 9 drivers for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and/or drugs.

During the seven-hour operation, Oxnard officers assigned to the Central Business District deployed throughout Oxnard’s downtown area with a specific focus on impaired driving. In addition to the 9 drivers arrested for DUI, one additional person was arrested on a miscellaneous charge, and five citations were issued for various infractions. Additionally, 10 vehicles were towed because of arrests made or for driver license infractions and the owners of the vehicles will face a minimum tow fee of $494.00

The Oxnard Police Department will continue conducting DUI enforcement in an effort to reduce the number of alcohol related crashes and to make our roadways and community safer. We also remind people that if they see an impaired driver to dial 911. The saturations are funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) through the National Highway Transportation Administration.
