7 arrested at La Mirada DUI checkpoint

Seven drivers were arrested at a Sheriff's Department DUI checkpoint last night on Imperial Hwy. west of Valley View Av. including one driver that was taken into custody for DUI.

Five drivers were arrested for driving without a license or for being behind the wheel with a suspended or revoked license.

The owner of one vehicle was arrested, cited, and released for knowingly allowing an unlicensed driver to operate their vehicle (yes it's a misdemeanor crime) and one driver was cited for having an open container of alcohol in their vehicle.

Deputies towed five vehicles during the operation funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety that began at 6 p.m. and ended at 2 a.m.
