Drunk Driver Arrested for Violating Pilot Fire Road Closure

A drunk driver was arrested after he attempted to drive around a Pilot fire road closure in Apple Valley Wednesday. Police say 37-year-old Mario Lopez was driving a black Cadillac when he attempted to drive around the closure at Deep Creek Road and Rock Springs Road.

Deputies stopped the vehicle and found that Lopez was driving under the influence. Further investigation also revealed that the vehicle he was driving was reported stolen, and that Lopez had an active no bail warrant out. The drunk driver was arrested and booked at the High Desert Detention Center.

The Pilot Fire has burned 8,000 acres in San Bernardino County and is still not fully contained. Drivers need to be aware of road closures due to the fire and stay clear of any area that is affected.

“We hope the fire will be fully contained soon. In the meantime, please respect the road closures for your own safety,” said Attorney Walter Clark, founder of Walter Clark Legal Group.
