Video shows police breaking car's window at DUI checkpoint (North County Times)

A video of two young men being arrested at an Escondido sobriety checkpoint in February shows police breaking the window of their car after the driver refuses repeated requests to roll down his window and show his driver's license.

The North County Times obtained a copy of the video on Tuesday from one of the attorneys for the men. It shows the driver, Angel Navarrete, and his passenger, Daniel Alfaro, as they drive to the checkpoint Feb. 11.

Navarrete and Alfaro, both of whom live in Escondido, were arrested and charged with resisting a police officer. Both men pleaded not guilty to the misdemeanor charge on March 29 in Vista Superior Court. The driver had a valid license and was not intoxicated.
