More Than 100 People Arrested On DUI Charges So Far During December Campaign By Public Safety Officials In Santa Barbara County

Posted on Friday, December 30, 2011 2:53pm

Santa Barbara County’s “Avoid The 12″ campaign to keep DUI drivers off the road during the holidays has led to 105 arrests as of Friday, 12/30.  The campaign includes 12 agencies in the county ranging from the CHP, to Santa Barbara Police working together to try to keep roads, and highways safe.

The arrests also include a driver involved in a court sting in Santa Barbara.  The man pled guilty to a DUI charge, and he was told by a judge he could no longer drive, because his license was suspended after his arrest.  Deputies then saw him driving out of a nearby parking garage, and he was stopped, and arrested.
