Law enforcers across Salt Lake County were kept busy Saturday night through early Monday morning dealing with DUI-related accidents.
About a dozen people were booked into the Salt Lake County Jail for investigation of several DUI-related crimes including hit-and-run, causing an accident with serious bodily injury and driving on a revoked license.
In one incident, officers said, a 48-year-old man attempted to leave the scene of an accident at 3100 South and 2700 West. The victims in that incident reported head and neck pains, according to a Salt Lake County Jail report.
The driver, who had only an identification card from Mexico, registered a 0.166 on his Breathalyzer test, or twice the legal limit.
In another incident, officers were called to the parking lot of Tropicana, 55 W. 8000 South, just after 2 a.m. Sunday on a 28-year-old man spinning doughnuts in the parking lot. The man ignored the officer's commands to stop and then tried to hit the officer with his truck, according to a jail report.
The vehicle fled the scene but was pulled over a few blocks later. The driver registered a 0.09 on the officer's portable breath test machine and a 0.102 later, police said.
In yet another incident Sunday afternoon, a 21-year-old man caused an accident at 200 East and 1700 South that injured another driver, according to a jail report. The extent of the other driver's injuries were not known Monday.
The man ran off from the accident scene but was located by police a short time later. The man had never obtained a driver's license, had no insurance and his registration had been revoked.Officers from Salt Lake City, Midvale, West Valley City, Murray and Salt Lake County were all involved in making DUI arrests Sunday.
