Rohnert Park checkpoint nets 2 on DUI charges

A Memorial Day holiday weekend checkpoint netted two drunken drivers in Rohnert Park, police said Saturday.

Another half-dozen drivers were arrested for driving without a license, or driving on a suspended license.

The police checkpoint was set up to screen drivers on the Rohnert Park Expressway, near State Farm Drive, beginning at 7 pm. Friday and ending at 1:30 am. Saturday.

A total of 1,291 vehicles passed through the checkpoint.

With the exception of the suspected drunken drivers, all of the unlicensed drivers were allowed to get a licensed driver to drive their vehicle away to avoid being towed.

Police said one driver in a van ran away and they later found several loaded hypodermic needles with heroin in the abandoned vehicle.
