DUI checkpoints are held frequently around the Coachella Valley, but always at night into the wee hours of the next morning.

But it was a drunk driver, driving around in broad daylight that caused problems for law enforcement officers Tuesday December 21st.

It all started just before 1:30 in the afternoon when deputies in Palm Desert attempted to stop the driver of a silver sedan on Highway 11 east of Monterey Avenue, near Sage Lane in Palm Desert.

The driver of that car hit the gas, hitting high speeds until his car conked out on Washington Street several blocks south of 111 in La Quinta.

There was a warrant out for the guy’s arrest already, and now tack on charges of DUI and evading police.
