1 Arrested During DUI Saturation Patrol
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Department Perris Station, serving the city of Menifee, arrested James Wilds, 33, a resident of Romoland, on suspicion of DUI while conducting a DUI Saturation Patrol on November 15, 2019.
In addition, Deputies made 25 vehicle enforcement stops, cited 11 drivers for vehicle code violations, towed one vehicle, and arrested one subject for having five misdemeanor warrants.
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 Riverside County Sheriff’s Department 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 Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Citizens may also submit a tip using the Sheriff's CrimeTips online form.
