CHP Cracking Down on Outstanding DUI Warrants

“Every day in California officers are apprehending impaired drivers; however, some of these individuals fail to appear for court,” said California Highway Patrol (CHP) Commissioner Joe Farrow. “The DUI warrant service teams were established so these individuals can be held accountable for their actions.”

The CHP spent the past several months attempting to right that wrong, using a grant to deploy teams of law enforcement officers throughout California in counties with an overwhelming number of outstanding arrest warrants issued for individuals charged with DUI who failed to appear for court."

If you have been arrested for DUI and have failed to appear in court, you likely have a "bench warrant" for your arrest. Under this policy, the CHP or local police agencies may even appear at your home during the holidays to make an arrest. Furthermore, if you're on DUI probation and have failed to complete one of your requirements, i.e. filing Proof of Enrollment or Proof of Completion of your DUI school, you may have a post conviction warrant for your arrest.

If you or someone you know has been arrested for DUI in California or have been convicted but are not sure if you've complied with all the terms and conditions of your DUI probation, CONTACT A LAWYER IMMEDIATELY.
