Shaunna Feeney, 34, of Newhall, was arrested on a DUI charge by Traffic Unit deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

Fire Department officials phoned the incident into Sheriff’s Station officials at 7:07 a.m., said Deputy Josh Dubin of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station.

"We encourage people to call 911 if they suspect someone might be drunk driving no matter what time of day it is," Dubin said. "Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff's Station are working around the clock with the community we serve to keep our roads safe."

Feeney was book at the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station on Friday morning and being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
