In addition to the DUI arrest, one Field Sobriety Test was conducted, and 29 citations were issued for various vehicle code violations. Deputies contacted and arrested 23-year-old, Las Vegas Nevada resident, Donavon Mason for Driving Under the Influence, Speeding and a Red-Light violation and was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center.
Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be approximately $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station wants to remind drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” Prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, can impair and result in a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs.
The Perris Station Deputies will be conducting another DUI Saturation Patrol in the near future.
Funding for this DUI Saturation Patrol was provided by a grant from the California Highway Patrol.
