According to a recent report, there were 68 DUI arrests in Napa County in January alone.

The NapaValleyRegister.com released a report reflecting the number of DUI arrests and DUI convictions, including so-called “wet reckless” convictions, in Napa County.  The information comes from the Napa County Sheriff’s Department and reflects monthly statistics.  There are even names, convictions and blood-alcohol levels listed in the report that come directly from Napa County Superior Court.

The DUI convictions listed in the report are cases where the defendants pleaded guilty or no contest to one or more drunk driving charges or where one or more of the charges led to a guilty verdict at trial.

NapaValleyRegister.com’s report shows vehicle code violations, which are driving under the influence (Vehicle Code section 231512), reckless driving while under the influence (23103.5) and causing injury to another person while driving while under the influence (23153).

The Napa County Superior Court provided blood-alcohol levels based on the results from various tests.  Some of the blood-alcohol tests were taken at the time of the arrests, while others were taken with a blood sample at a later time.  The results of these tests have not necessarily been proven or admitted in court.  In California, a person is not allowed to drive if he or she has a blood-alcohol level of 0.08 percent or higher.

Below is a summary of the number of arrests, DUI convictions and blood alcohol levels.  Names are listed in the report, as well, which can be found on NapaValleyRegister.com

DUI Arrests: 68

DUI Convictions/pleas: 63

Reported blood-alcohol below .10 or unavailable: 18

Reported blood-alcohol between .10 and .19: 32
