BPD Arrests Ten Suspected Impaired Drivers Over The Weekend

BEND, OR -- Bend Police say ten drivers were arrested for DUII in a 48-hour span over the weekend. They stretch from 1 a.m. Friday through just before 7 p.m. Saturday.

In one case, a suspected impaired driver nearly hit a Bend Police car head-on near 8th and Bennington Way, just before midnight Friday. Another driver almost hit a school bus, Friday afternoon, ending up on the sidewalk.

One of the suspects pulled over early Saturday is just 17 years old. An 18-year-old from Sunriver was arrested early Friday for driving the wrong way on Bond St.

BPD has logged nearly 600 DUII arrests in 2023. Bend officers are working grant-funded overtime patrols, in an effort to combat impaired driving over the holidays.
