Deputy Marilyn Doris Mendez of the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol. Several sources confirm that she was arrested at 2:10 am Saturday in the Gas Lamp District. She was initially pulled over for making an illegal turn, but after further investigation, was arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence of alcohol.
Deputy Mendez was off duty during the time of her arrest.
Sources told news stations that Mrs. Mendez was cited for a DUI but was never booked into jail. Deputy Mendez’ arrest had enough cause to warrant the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department to conduct an internal investigation.
Special treatment? I represent numerous DUI clients every week and they all seem to be booked into jail after being arrested. It appears that Deputy Mendez received some special treatment.
