A 31-year-old Napa man went to jail Saturday night after driving to a Napa Police Department DUI checkpoint and providing a false name.

Police said that Alfred Lee Hicks Jr., approached the checkpoint on the 700 block of Lincoln Avenue at 7:35 p.m., and identified himself using a different name. According to police Hicks agreed to a search and officers found methamphetamine on him.

The officers determined that Hicks drove on a suspended license and arrested him on suspicion of providing a false name to a peace officer, possession of methamphetamine and driving on a suspended license.

Hicks was taken to jail without incident. At Saturday’s checkpoint police encountered one DUI motorist, eight individuals driving with a suspended drivers license and 10 unlicensed motorists, and impounded 17 vehicles. A total of 550 vehicles traveled through the checkpoint.

Wow...that's alot of unlicenced/suspended drivers! Too bad there isn't some way to be sure they aren't back behind the wheel again today. Thanks for the good work NPD.


Outstanding! I did feel safer driving around Napa today. Great job!
