1. Oakland Councilman Ignacio De La Fuente will not face drunken driving charges because prosecutors couldn’t prove he was legally drunk at the time of his arrest last month, the Trib and Chron report. The Alameda County District Attorney’s Office said that De La Fuente’s blood-alcohol level rose between the time of his arrest to when he was booked at an Oakland jail, and so they couldn’t tell whether he was actually above the legal limit when pulled over by a CHP officer on Interstate 580. De La Fuente took a breathalyzer test at the scene, but such tests are unreliable.
