Drunk man lucky to spend night in Claremont jail

On Sunday, September 25, a Riverside man was arrested on a drunk and disorderly charge after police gave him a golden opportunity to get a ride home. Police found 35-year-old Kenneth Arellano passed out in the driver’s seat of a white two-door Honda Accord in front of Bank of America around 3:45 a.m. Officers gave Mr. Arellano an option to get a ride home, and he contacted an Uber to come pick him up. A short time later, the Uber returned to the scene and Mr. Arellano exited, telling officers he was going to wait 30 minutes to drive home “because he would be sober enough to drive.” He was arrested and transported to CPD jail, where he was released without charges after sobering up.
