DUI checkpoint in Burbank: 1,021 drivers screened, zero arrests

A sobriety checkpoint in Burbank on Saturday that screened 1,021 drivers yielded zero arrests, police reported.

Burbank police were stationed at Glenoaks Boulevard just north of Alameda Avenue from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., during which six drivers were detained for field sobriety tests, said police Sgt. Darin Ryburn.  None were arrested.

Two citations were issued – one for a driving infraction and another for driving without a license.

The Burbank Police Department last year received a $31,500 grant through the California Office of Traffic Safety to conduct sobriety checkpoints through September.
