Paul Salisbury, 28, of Folsom was arrested early Monday morning for DUI after a Ceres officer spotted him driving erratically in the area of Mitchell and Hatch roads.
At 1:37 a.m. Officer Christian Izquierdo observed a white Honda Crosstour driving southbound and believed the driver was impaired. Officer Izquierdo stopped the vehicle in the parking lot of Carnitas Michoacan at 2228 Mitchell Road. As the vehicle came to a stop, Salisbury opened the door and exited the vehicle. Officer Izquierdo could smell the strong odor of alcoholic as Salisbury spoke with a slow, slurred speech, had red water eyes and struggled to follow simple instructions. An open bottle of vodka was on the front passenger seat approximately a quarter empty.
During questioning Salisbury told the officer: “I know I’m DUI. I made a mistake, let’s just get this over with. I already have one DUI and this will be my second.”
Salisbury, who is currently on probation for DUI, was arrested for DUI again. He elected to complete a breath test which tested his blood alcohol content at 0.32 percent – four times over the legal limit. He was booked at the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center for DUI.
