Weekend checkpoint in Glendale nets three DUIs

A sobriety checkpoint in Glendale netted three alleged drunk driving arrests over the July 4 weekend, according to police.

About 1,800 vehicles passed through the checkpoint at Los Feliz Boulevard and Gardena Avenue between 6 p.m. Saturday and 3 a.m. Sunday, said Glendale Police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

Fifty-three vehicles were screened, while 10 field sobriety tests were administered, she said.

Three people were taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, while no one was arrested for any drug-related DUIs, Lightfoot said.

Nine people were also arrested for allegedly driving without a license, she said.

In addition, two motorists were cited for suspended licenses.

A checkpoint in early June netted one alleged drunk driver, while three other motorists were booked on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.
