Repeat DUI Offender Arrested After Police Stakeout

March 9, 2011- A two time DUI offender from Petaluma, CA was arrested after a police stakeout at a bar on Monday. The target was Steven Roetter, a two time DUI offender, who was on active DUI probation with terms that include not driving with a measurable amount of alcohol in the system, not to possess or use alcohol, and to stay out of locations where alcoholic beverages are the primary item for sale including liquor stores and bars.

Officers from the Habitual DUI Offender Stakeout Program spotted Roetter’s vehicle parked at a bar in Petaluma on Monday at approximately 4:45 PM. At around 5:00 PM, Roetter exited the bar and drove away. After driving a minimal distance, officers
stopped Roetter. The officers conducted a DUI evaluation and arrested Roetter.  Roetter had a blood alcohol level of 0.11 percent. Roetter was booked at Sonoma County Jail with bail set at $45,000.

Roetter’s license was valid at the time of the stop; however, due to his prior DUI offenses, his vehicle will be impounded for 15 days. Roetter is being charged with DUI with two priors and violation of DUI probation. The Habitual DUI Offender Stakeout Program is funded by a grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
