Costa Mesa remained quiet on Sunday relative to its southern neighbor, with just 25 July Fourth arrests compared with 103 in Newport Beach.
The Costa Mesa Police Department responded to 118 calls for service — mostly related to fireworks — and had 25 arrests. Seven of the arrests were for suspected DUIs and five were for suspected public intoxication, police said.
The other arrests were "nickel-and-dime" calls, some relating to marijuana, domestic violence and a customer who did not pay his restaurant bill, said Sgt. Phil Myers.
