Second sobriety checkpoint this month yields single DUI arrest

Ten arrests were made during a sobriety checkpoint in Glendale over the weekend, police said.

From 6 p.m. Saturday through 2 a.m. on Sunday, 1,742 vehicles passed through the checkpoint at the intersection of Los Feliz Road and Gardena Avenue, said Glendale Police Sgt. Harout Bouzikian.

Twenty-one field sobriety tests were administered, and only one alleged drunk driver was arrested, Bouzikian said.

Nine people were taken into custody for driving without a license, while one was cited for being behind the wheel with a suspended license, Bouzikian said.

In addition, four motorists were cited for moving violations, he said.

Another sobriety checkpoint earlier this month also netted one drunk-driving arrest.
