Does anyone know what happened downtown around 1230-100 pm on Friday July 23, right by the fountain, church, and retaurant/bodega on the corner? I was shopping downtown with my kids and all of a sudden at least four police cars pulled in there, lights and all.

I don't know, but I heard the new donut shop at the square was running a BOGO special.

I hope the time, man-hours and money spent on that checkpoint was worth 13 citations and zero arrests... it seems "DUI" checkpoints are more for checking registration and inspection lapses nowadays rather than drunk drivers. What a waste of taxpayer money....

Something about getting hit by a Subaru just doesn't sit well with me. I mean, if I got hit by a Chrysler, I'd probably do more damage to the car....

doesn't it say five DUI arrests were made? I would say that was worth the money if it means five at least partially drunk people were taken off the road ....I think of the potential innocent lives saved and have to say I am glad for DUI arrests. I am not against drinking alcohol but have little tolerance for drinking and driving and potentially harming innocent people.
