DUI Saturation Patrols This Friday

San Francisco Police Department’s Traffic Unit will be conducting DUI saturation patrols today, Friday, March 17th, 2017 between the hours of 7:00 P.M. and 3:00 A.M. Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized DUI checkpoints and proactive DUI patrols are conducted routinely.

Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment by checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily. When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving. Recent statistics reveal that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems. A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent). Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

Drivers caught driving impaired can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to include jail time, fines, fees, DUI classes, other expenses that can exceed $10,000, not to mention the embarrassment when friends and family find out.

Funding for this checkpoint is provided to the San Francisco Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, reminding everyone to ‘Report Drunk Drivers – Call 9-1-1’.

12:11pm     4800 Blk. Mission                   Forged Check
An alert teller, along with her bank manager, called police to report a man attempting to cash a fraudulent check. The suspect had made a previous attempt to cash the forgery on a previous day near closing time. The teller told him to come back the next day to process the transaction. In the meantime bank officials confirmed the $2400 check was a fake. On this day, besides bank officials, Ingleside officers Vong, Oleary-Klier, Felix, and Foltz were at the bank to apprehend the suspect. He was placed in custody. A computer check revealed a significant arrest record for burglary, theft, and other crimes. He also had methamphetamine in his front pocket. Report number: 170191731 

Serious Incidents: 

11:38pm     100 Blk. Teddy                                Aggravated Assault
Ingleside officers Ahern, Duncga, and Calupad were in the 7-11 parking lot when a gray Toyota Camry with a blown out driver’s side window pulled in. The officers noticed the driver in serious pain. He told the officers that he was the victim of an attempted robbery. The officers noticed a large spot of blood on his back. They pulled up his shirt and saw a bullet wound to the left of his spine. The officers called for medical help and applied first aid while the ambulance was in route to the scene. During that time the victim told the officers that he was parked mid-block on Teddy, between Alpha and Rutland, playing Pokemon on his phone, when a black sports car pulled up. A passenger exited the suspect’s vehicle and attempted to open the driver’s door of the victim’s car. Fearing a carjacking, the victim maneuvered his car and fled with the suspects behind him. During the chase he heard several “pops” and felt extreme pain in his back. Witnesses told the officers they saw a suspect leaning out of the passenger window of the trailing car firing a gun at the victim. The victim was transported to San Francisco General Hospital and treated for a liver laceration, a shattered kidney and colon, but was otherwise in stable condition. Report number: 170197115
