DUI Checkpoints, Drunk Patrols Across L.A. Starting Tonight

Cinco de Mayo just happened and cops swarmed Southern California with DUI checkpoints and drunk patrols.

Don't they ever let up?

No. The LAPD is back at it this weekend -- starting tonight -- with checkpoints and "saturation patrols" in Harvard Heights, South L.A., Boyle Heights, and scenic Van Nuys. Don't say we didn't warn you:

-Tonight, from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., there will be a DUI checkpoint on South Vermont Avenue between Pico Boulevard and 12th Street in Harvard Heights. (It'll be like shooting fish in a barrel.)
