A series of traffic checkpoints in Guam on Friday night helped yield more than two dozen alcohol-related arrests, including three involving servicemembers, according to Guam police.

One of those three, a command sergeant major with the National Guard on Guam, tested at a .064 percent blood-alcohol content. That is within the legal limit, which is .08 percent, a Guam police spokesman, Officer Allan Guzman, said Monday.

But the soldier, Walter Perez DeJesus, 42, failed the on-site sobriety test and was charged with driving under the influence, Guzman said.

“If you show signs of intoxication, you can still be arrested,” Guzman said.

Two sailors also were charged with driving under the influence on Friday: Petty Officer 2nd Class Robert Cezarre Houston, 29, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Alexander Sergeyevich Fedorov, 22.

Houston was charged additionally with reckless driving and disobeying a red traffic light.

All three servicemembers were booked and released, according to Guzman.

Additional information from military officials on Guam was unavailable.
