It's Friday the 13th. And if you're superstitious, you should hear the one about the chupacabra with a badge.
He hunts down idiot drunk drivers in places like Hollywood, Koreatown and Silver Lake only to lock them up and take lots of their money. Don't be stupid. We happen to know where this crime-fighting character will be this weekend. Listen up:
–Tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. there will be an LAPD DUI checkpoint on Hollywood Boulevard at Gower Street — right in the middle of partytown.
–Tonight from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. there will be another such checkpoint waiting for you on Vermont Avenue at Beverly Boulevard in lovely Koreatown.

Be safe. Don't say we didn't warn you.
