Reporting Deputy: Sergeant Bikul
File # N/A
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department, serving the City of Perris, conducted a Driving Under the Influence (DUI) saturation patrol on May 27, 2022. During the operation, one DUI arrest was made, thirty-two citations were issued for various vehicle code violations, five Field Sobriety Tests were conducted, and four vehicles were towed. Deputies contacted forty-nine-year-old, City of Perris resident, Ignacio Jose Hernandez for Speeding. The investigation revealed he was Driving Under the Influence and was subsequently arrested and booked into the Cois M. Byrd Detention Center for the related charge.
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. Please drive safely, obey the traffic laws, and buckle up.
Funding for this DUI Saturation Patrol was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
