A DUI/driver license checkpoint in Commerce yielded 14 arrests before it ended early Saturday, but only one was for suspicion of driving while impaired, authorities said.
The checkpoint was held from 6 p.m. Friday to 2 a.m. Saturday at Telegraph Road and Carrier Avenue, said Sgt. Robert L. Hill of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Information Bureau.
Of the remaining 13 arrests, 12 people were arrested and cited for driving without a license or with a suspended or revoked license and one driver was arrested for an out-of-county weapons warrant, Hill said. One of the drivers was also charged with an outstanding narcotics warrant and seven vehicles were towed.
Checkpoint locations are selected based on a history of crashes and DUI arrests, he said.
