El Monte Police traffic officers arrested five suspected DUI drivers during DUI patrols over the Halloween weekend, police said Monday.

“Members of the El Monte Police Traffic Safety Bureau were out in full force this Halloween weekend,” said Sgt. Jimmie Pitts.

“Of the five drivers arrested, one was driving with a suspended driver’s license and two had a blood-alcohol content of more than double the legal limit of 0.08 percent,” Pitts said.

The DUI patrols were an effort to ensure the safety of children during Halloween weekend festivities, he said.
