Sobriety Checkpoint Snares Two Schnockered Souls

City of Arcata




The Arcata Police Department conducted a sobriety/drivers license checkpoint along with enhanced enforcement on Friday, Jan. 18 in the 500 block of H Street.

The checkpoint was operated from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. and 191 cars were screened. In total, two drivers were arrested for driving under the influence and one was cited for driving unlicensed during the operation.

The checkpoint along with increased traffic enforcement, are part of the APD's effort to reduce collisions and improve traffic safety during the holiday season.
This project is part of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control's Minor Decoy/Shoulder Tap Grant Project, funded by the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

    This is news? Police and Fire reports are a matter of public record. Anybody and everybody can access them.I'm not even going to appolagize I don't particualy enjoy your magazine here it's geared towards perhaps the librarian and by the way everytime I submit something here it makes the Arcata Eye money and then you might just use that money to make further problems in my day.
    So no more Arcata Eye for me. I have met Mr. Hoover and his attitude and personality grate on me like heavy sandpaper on my face.

    My itelegence is insulted when I see you glorify Jonny who is abasically a bum whio my family used to give rides to Orik. Your F–ked in my book Hoover and I pray I should never have to look upon this rag this agian.
    One question where on earth did you get the money for the top floor of the Jacoby Storehouse you know the penthouse sweet and then be able to pick on homeless and DUI arrests?
    I'm never comming back to California and you can go to pot for all I care.

    By the way seeing how the residents of Humboldyt are so quik with 911 I have a Verizon phone with 911 on speed dial and would just love to use it one one of you and an empty restraining order on my desk with the filing fee taped to it.
    I left Arcata so as to get away from Arcatans.
    PS Petes and arsehole…
