Police make 26 DUI arrests at checkpoint

Citizen Staff Writer



Tucson police stopped 2,300 drivers and made 26 driving-under-the-influence arrests during a sobriety checkpoint Saturday night, said Sgt. Mark Robinson, a spokesman.

The checkpoint was designed to “increase the awareness of motorists about the dangers of impaired drinking, deter those who may be impaired from driving, and detect and investigate DUI offenses at the checkpoint,” Robinson said in a news release.

The checkpoint was on West Valencia Road, west of South 12th Avenue.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
