Hackers attack DUI checkpoint website in California

California DUI attorneys report that someone hacked into the Web site for the San Bernardino County sheriff's office in California and changed the wording on several news releases, forcing the agency to shut down the site last week, according to California DUI attorneys .

One news release warning motorists about a California DUI checkpoint in the nearby town of Highland was changed to read that officials wanted to "stick our big government schnoz into your private business, check your papers, and be sure you are toeing the line" per California DUI lawyers.

Also modified was a California DUI attorney news release earlier this month with information about the law that takes effect in July that forbids people from talking on their cell phones while driving, California DUI attorneys hear.

"I don't think that it's a joke to them, but they certainly want to send a message to the readers that they don't always agree with laws being changed," says sheriff's spokeswoman Cindy Beavers, according to California DUI criminal defense lawyers.
