A man was arrested for a DUI in Ocean Beach on the evening of September 16.

Arresting SDPD officer J. Wilson said the suspect, who was around 50 years old, was driving with a suspended license for a previous DUI. Officers were alerted after a 911 call came in, letting them know someone was driving erratically in the neighborhood.

The suspect pulled into the beach parking lot next to the new bathrooms and parked in a handicapped spot, for which he had a placard. He was starting to pull out of the spot when officers pulled in behind him and told him to step out of his car.

The suspect was given a field sobriety test and a breathalyzer test, which he was told he could refuse. He opted to do it and blew a .31. The legal limit in California is .08.

The suspect had a passenger in his van, and officers told him he was free to go but that the car was going to be impounded.

I would have liked to have seen just how the arrest went down. The cuffing officer is maybe half the weight of the suspect. Dangerous!

He was actually really calm. Even the cops said he was a nice guy, just screwed up from the drinking. And that little female cop was even feisty with me!

She was testy about me asking questions even after I identified myself. Part of the job of being a reporter.

Cops are like the white belts in martial arts, they arrive and learn a kick or two, a few punches and combo's and they magically think they are black belts. In reality they are the bottom of the food chain trying to be more....
