The Clovis Police Department netted two drunk drivers and one licence violator at its most recent sobriety/driver(s) license checkpoint over Memorial Day weekend near Clovis and Palo Alto avenues.

A total of  552 cars and trucks passed through Friday’s checkpoint between 9:30 p.m. and 1:30 a.m.

Clovis Police stopped and screened the drivers of 336 vehicles. Here are the stats for the evening/morning:

  • 2 arrested for DUI
  • 1 arrested for driving on a suspended license
