The Tulsa Police Department has released a statement on its website regarding a DUI checkpoint in Tulsa on Saturday, July 25, 2015 from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m.
The location was not specified in the statement.

DUI checkpoints function as a general purpose investigatory tactic whereby police can get a close look at passing drivers by detaining them briefly. A roadblock DUI checkpoint is quick, but it gives police a chance to check tags and licenses, while also giving officers a quick whiff of the driver’s breath and a chance to view inside the vehicle for a moment. While this type of random stop may seem unconstitutional at first blush, both the United States Supreme Court and the Oklahoma courts have upheld the validity in certain circumstances.
We will keep you informed regarding any updates that come to our attention.

Any drunk driving or drug-related DUI charge is a serious matter, whatever the exact circumstances and wherever the arrest occurred. Please recognize that: a basic first-offense Oklahoma DUI conviction can bring a sentence of up to one year in jail, a $1,000 fine plus hundreds in additional fees, driver’s license suspension and more. Additionally, “aggravating factors” such as a prior DUI conviction or the presence of a person under 18 in the vehicle significantly increase the potential for a lengthy jail sentence and other life-changing penalties.
