On Saturday, the Petaluma Police Department had six DUI-related arrests during a DUI saturation period. 

Police said five of the drivers were arrested for being over the .08 legal BAC limit. Three of those drivers were at least twice the limit. 

One of the drivers, age 20, allegedly had a BAC of .06 and was witnessed consuming alcohol. 

One other driver was arrested after driving into a power pole on Lakeville Street and then into a guard rail causing a power outage in the area.

Drivers facing a first-time DUI charge face average fines of between $13,500 and $20,000.

If you witness a suspected DUI driver, the Petaluma PD encourages you to call 911.
