WASHINGTON COUNTY, OR (KPTV) - The Washington County Sheriff’s Office had a busy weekend dealing with suspected drunken drivers.

The sheriff’s office sent out a series of tweets about various DUII investigations and arrests.

In one case Sunday, according to deputies, a man was driving drunk with a 2-year-old child in the front seat. The sheriff’s office reported the suspect went through two red lights, nearly hit a squad car and resisted arrest.

On Saturday, deputies said a woman was in her car in the Taco Bell drive-thru in front of an on-duty sheriff’s office sergeant when she reached through the window and poured alcohol into an employee’s mouth.

The 23-year-old suspect had a .12 blood-alcohol level, according to deputies, and was subsequently arrested and booked into jail.

Also on Saturday, deputies said DUII was suspected in a hit-and-run crash that sent a man and three children to the hospital near Sherwood.

Witnesses said the DUII suspect who caused the crash went into a ditch about two miles away from the initial crash. The driver and his passenger were quickly picked up in another vehicle and they drove away and remain on the loose.

On Sunday, deputies said another DUII suspect crashed off the road, threw a beer into a nearby lake and then walked away from the crash scene.

The sheriff’s office tweeted, “Thankfully no one was seriously hurt or killed” in any of the cases that “put the public at risk.”

DUII is the most selfish, stupid and probably one of the most offensive acts people can commit upon our society. Literally every week another report of someone under the influence crash's a car into innocent people who's only mistake was thinking that such people would not be so senseless and stupid. We, as a community, are far too lenient on this type of crime and we need to wake up.
