Officers arrested two motorists on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol at a Pacific Beach checkpoint, the San Diego Police Department said Sunday.

Authorities conducted the checkpoint between 9:45 p.m. Saturday and 2:10 a.m. Sunday at 2600 Ingraham St.

Of the 867 vehicles passing through the checkpoint, police screened 657 and evaluated six drivers, according to Officer Anthony Obregon.

Officers arrested the two DUI suspects in or near the checkpoint. The drivers were believed to be under the influence of alcohol.

They also stopped a driver for operating a vehicle with a suspended or revoked license, and impounded two vehicles.

The department funded the checkpoint through by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
