ESCONDIDO ---- Police impounded 22 vehicles at a Saturday night DUI and license checkpoint, according to an Escondido Police Department statement.

Twenty-four drivers received citations at the checkpoint; two had suspended driver's licenses and 22 did not have a license at all, according to the statement.

One driver was arrested for driving under the influence and four drivers were determined to be unlicensed and in the country illegally. Three with previous criminal arrests were turned over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the statement said.

The fourth was released after authorities couldn't determine whether he had prior convictions.
