    A DUI checkpoint conducted by SDPD officers in Pacific Beach overnight yielded a total of 12 DUI-related arrests, officials said.

    Officers set up the checkpoint in the 2600 block of busy Ingraham Street from 11:02 p.m. Friday night until 3 a.m. Saturday morning.

    During that time span, 612 vehicles passed through the checkpoint and 474 of those vehicles were stopped and screened by officers.

    A total of 24 motorists were detained for further sobriety evaluations. From there, 12 DUI-related arrests were made in or near the checkpoint, police said.

    An additional arrest was also made for public intoxication.

    The DUI checkpoint was made possible by a California Office of Traffic Safety “DUI Mini Grant.”

    Last weekend, SDPD officers conducted a DUI checkpoint in downtown San Diego that also resulted in 12 DUI-related arrests.
