Napa Police reported the arrests of three motorists between Saturday night and early Sunday morning during its latest saturation patrol to stop suspected drunken drivers.

The drivers detained on suspicion of driving under the influence were a 36-year-old Vacaville woman, a 74-year-old man from Brazil, and a 19-year-old Napa man whose blood-alcohol percentage of 0.17 was more than twice the California legal limit, Sgt. Kristofer Jenny said in a news release.

Five other people were cited for vehicle code violations, and 42 vehicles were stopped during the patrol, which took place from 6 p.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday, according to Jenny.

Napa Police's anti-DUI patrols are funded by a grant from the state Office of Traffic Safety, using funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
