    The checkpoint was setup at El Cajon Boulevard and 41st Street from 9:01 p.m. to 12:43 a.m., along with saturation patrols, said SDPD Officer Mark McCullough.

    One motorist was arrested and had their car impounded and a passenger in the car was cited after police said they threw an open alcohol container out of the window as the car drove into the checkpoint, McCullough said.

    Officers made four more arrests for drunken driving during the saturation patrols, McCullough added.
