Sheriff’s deputies in Palmdale are putting motorists with outstanding DUI (driving under the influence) warrants on notice. Los Angeles Sheriff’s officials say they are actively going after motorists with outstanding warrants to dispel the idea that motorists arrested for DUI can avoid the consequences by simply ignoring or avoiding the court system.
Sheriff’s deputies are planning on fanning out into neighborhoods as they target high-risk DUI offenders with outstanding arrest warrants. Deputies will arrest those who failed to show up for a court date or those who violated the terms of their probation in an outstanding DUI case. Those who get caught can face increased jail time for failing to make a court appearance or for a probation violation.
It is critical for anyone arrested for driving under the influence to realize that pretending it never happened is simply not a good solution. Not showing up to your DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) hearing or court hearing is not going to help put your DUI arrest behind you.
