A 24-year-old Modesto man driving in the area of Mitchell Road and Garrison Street was arrested on DUI charges after being stopped for vehicle code violations Sunday evening.

Ceres Police Officer Nicholas Welsh was on patrol at 9:34 p.m. when he stopped a Toyota sedan driven by Eduardo Nieto, 24, of Modesto. It became apparent to Officer Welsh that Nieto was under the influence of an alcoholic beverage. Nieto was given field sobriety tests and submitted to giving a breath sample which showed he was over the legal limit to drive.

Nieto was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center for DUI.
