WHITE CITY, Ore. — After announcing extra saturation patrols for Halloween night, the Jackson County Sheriff's Office (JCSO) says that deputies made five arrests for Driving Under the Influence of Intoxicants (DUII) — including two stemming from rollover crashes.

Deputies arrested four men and one woman for DUII on Wednesday night. JCSO said that two of the arrests came after separate rollover crashes in the White City area — on Avenue G and Agate Road, and on Kershaw Road at Thunder Road. Nobody was injured in either of the crashes.

JCSO said that deputies arrested the remaining three drivers after they found the drivers to be impaired during traffic stops. Four of the five drivers were found to be impaired by alcohol (0.08 percent Blood Alcohol Content or higher); one was suspected to be impaired by a combination of alcohol and prescription medication.

"As the holiday season approaches, JCSO deputies urge drivers to consider the potentially deadly consequences of impaired driving." JCSO said. "People are urged to plan ahead and make safe driving decisions if their holiday celebrations include alcohol."
