San Andreas Resident Arrested On DUI Charge

San Andreas, CA — 24 year old Jonathan E. Giuffra of San Andreas was arrested by the CHP Wednesday evening at approximately 8:30 and booked into the County Jail on a charge of driving under the influence.

According to the CHP report Giuffra was traveling westbound on Mountain Ranch Rd. in his 2000 Jeep Wrangler approaching Hwy 49. 85 year old Wesley B. Andahl, also of San Andreas, was traveling northbound on Hwy 49 in his 2007 Chevrolet.

As Giuffra approached Hwy 49 he failed to stop at the posted stop sign due to his level of intoxication. He traveled directly into the path of Andahl’s vehicle.

CHP administered a field sobriety test and determined that Giuffra was driving under the influence. The CHP officer discovered a semi-automatic pistol and a shotgun in Giuffra’s vehicle. They were booked into evidence.

Giuffra suffered minor injuries. Andahl was not injured.
