[UPDATED] Garden Grove Police DUI Checkpoint Results

UPDATE, FEB. 22, 8:18 A.M.:

Despite on and off rain, Garden Grove police did operate a sobriety checkpoint Friday night.

Police Sergeant Carl Whitney of GGPD's Traffic Division says four drivers were arrested for DUI and 15 vehicles were impounded, with 15 citations doled out to drivers for DUI, being unlicensed and/or driving on a suspended license.

In response to reader requests, the Weekly is following up DUI checkpoints we preview with the results of the operations.

ORIGINAL POST, FEB. 18, 5:17 P.M.: There are two words to key in on in the Garden Grove Police Department's announcement of a sobriety checkpoint on Garden Grove Boulevard beginning at 9 tonight:

"Weather permitting."

Yep, the slick roads outside may put the kabosh on the operation scheduled to continue through 3 a.m. Saturday.

"Traffic volume and weather permitting, all vehicles may be checked and drivers who are under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs will be arrested," reads the cop shop's announcement. "Our objective is to send a clear message to those who are considering driving a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol and/or drugs--Drunk Driving, Over the Limit, Under Arrest."

Mottos are cool!

As usual, funding for the operation is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Stay thirsty, my friend.
