A DUI/driver's license checkpoint Friday night at Grand Avenue and Lake Street in Lake Elsinore resulted in two arrests, a sergeant from the Lake Elsinore Sheriff’s Station is reporting.
Lake Elsinore residents Joy Marie Jacobs, 43, and Michael F. Shelburn, 66, were arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, according to Sgt. Peter Giannakakos.
Additionally, 20 people were sent to court for not having a license or driving on a suspended license, and three vehicles were impounded, the sergeant said.
In total, 577 vehicles passed through the checkpoint and five people were given field sobriety tests, he added.
“The goal of the DUI checkpoint was to remove impaired and suspended drivers from the roadway and raise public awareness of the dangers of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol,” Giannakakos said.
The checkpoint, which was conducted by the Lake Elsinore Police Department, was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
