Cops Cite 4 DUI Offenders Trying to Drive from Court Where Licenses Were Just Suspended
The Buena Park Police Department set up one of those stings Thursday morning where they followed DUI offenders who'd just had their drivers licenses suspended or revoked at the North Justice Center.
Of 13 people followed out of the courthouse, four were cited for allegedly trying to drive vehicles away.
Keep in mind these geniuses got behind the wheel--allegedly--after a judge had just told them they cannot drive.
The four were trotted back into court, according to police. Some now face jail time, longer suspensions, attorney fees, court costs, lost time at work, and the potential loss of job or job prospects.
Like DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols, the court sting was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
