A concerned Fountain Valley resident called the police when a driver after almost collided with another vehicle and a gas pump at a gas station.

The resident also observed that the vehicle was missing a rear window and had significant windshield damage.

The responding Fountain Valley police officers conducted a DUI investigation and the driver was ultimately arrested for driving under the influence of narcotics.

The Fountain Valley Police Department would like to remind everyone that driving high is still a DUI!

Under California Vehicle Code Section 23152, it is unlawful for you to drive a vehicle while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage or drug, or a combination of both, according to the Orange County law firm Wallin & Klarich.

Any driving while under the influence (DUI) punishment may include the following:

  • Jail time
  • Fines and other related penalty assessments that will cost over $2,000; and
  • Suspension of your driver’s license.

What jail time you may be facing depends on how many prior DUI convictions you may have.
