It is that time of year again. The sun is shining, the beaches are hopping and the police are arresting tourists like nobody’s business. Whether it is the California Highway Patrol, San Diego Police or any of the other law enforcement agencies in the county, many of our out of town visitors are getting arrested by the police. Frankly, they make easy targets. They are out enjoying themselves and often are not familiar with the area, so it is easy to catch them in some minor traffic violation and use that as an excuse to see if they have been drinking.
