Police: Napa officers injured after DUI arrest


Several officers sustained minor injuries while trying to get a man suspected of drunk driving to cooperate on Wednesday night, according to Napa Police.

Roland Anthony Garza Jr., 33, was arrested after officers, responding to a report of a wreck, detected signs of intoxication, police said. Garza was so drunk he was unable to perform field sobriety tests and was taken to the Napa County jail where he did a preliminary alcohol-screening, police said.

Garza tested as having a blood alcohol concentration of .24 and .269 percent – three times the legal limit of .08 percent, police said.

Police said when AMR personnel arrived at the jail to draw blood, Garza, who had one hand free, pulled away and physically fought the assisting officers. Garza was subdued and a blood sample was taken. He was booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of driving under the influence and resisting an officer.
