Inquiring pedestrian stumbles up to DUI checkpoint, gets arrested

COSTA MESA — A DUI checkpoint, conducted Monday night by the Costa Mesa Police Department, received a surprise pedestrian visitor whose alleged drunken condition led to his arrest.

Rodrigo Saivin Cumes, 37, of Costa Mesa reportedly approached the checkpoint to investigate what was happening. According to police, though, Cumes was so intoxicated that he was in no condition to care for himself and his safety was at risk, so he was taken into custody.

Three other drivers were detained at the checkpoint for suspected intoxicated motorists out of the 633 vehicles screened.

A total of 2,055 vehicles went through the checkpoint, with 15 individuals receiving citations and one vehicle impounded for a mandatory 30 days.

Police also reported seeing two drivers switch seats with their passengers as they approached the checkpoint, apparently out of fear of being popped for driving under the influence.
