A DUI Checkpoint set up Saturday during Labor Day weekend netted two arrests and one citation. CHP Officer Greg Tassone tells KNCO that the checkpoint began at 6:00 PM with roving patrols which netted one arrest. The second part of the checkpoint is a static operation that was set up on East Main Street in Grass Valley and also netted a DUI arrest.
