Two drivers arrested at Grass Valley DUI checkpoint

Of 530 people who drove through the DUI checkpoint in Grass Valley over Memorial Day weekend, two were arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, said Grass Valley Police Capt. Dave Remillard.

The number of people who went through the checkpoint on Brunswick Road at Sutton Way Friday night was “an all-time record high” compared to other years, Remillard said.

“I don’t think we’ve ever had that many drive through in past years,” he added.

The rate of two drunk drivers per 530 motorists was not considered higher than normal, and is “pretty common,” he said.
