About 630 Pacific Gas and Electric customers in east Stockton were still without electricity Monday night after a truck-trailer plowed into two poles on Alpine Road, triggering a large outage.

The driver of the county truck, a San Joaquin County Public Works employee identified as 59-year Jay Charles White, was arrested by the California Highway Patrol on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was booked into San Joaquin County Jail on a misdemeanor with open charges, according to the jail website. He was later released after posting $3,000.
