DUI checkpoint in Newport Beach, Orange County tonight

Drivers in Newport Beach may want to stay off of Newport Boulevard tonight, where traffic is bound to back up and waits could be up to an hour or more. The Newport Beach Police Department will be conducting a sobriety or DUI check point on Newport (northbound) at Finley Avenue from 8pm until 3am.

This area in particular was chosen for the stop because of its proximity to local restaurants and bars and because of the number of DUI-related accidents in the area, according to the Orange County register.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI, contact Orange County criminal lawyer Staycie R. Sena at (949)477-8088 for a free consultation today.
