Few arrests during Christmas CHP enforcement

LAKE COUNTY – The California Highway Patrol's maximum enforcement period over the Christmas holiday yielded only a few arrests for driving under the influence.

The CHP ratcheted up its coverage on county roads from Dec. 24 at 6 p.m. through midnight on Sunday.

Officers made only two arrests for DUI in that time, according to jail arrest reports.

The first was on Christmas day, when Francis Boettcher Jr., 56, of Windsor was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and causing bodily injury.

The only other arrest of the maximum enforcement period came on Sunday, when the CHP arrested 51-year-old Marsha Schefcick of Lakeport for allegedly driving under the influence and willful cruelty to a child, according to jail records.

The CHP is expected to hold another maximum enforcement period for the New Year's holiday.
