Twelve people were arrested last Friday in Glendale during a DUI checkpoint conducted by the police department.

Of those arrested, only two were suspected of driving under the influence, according to a statement from the Glendale Police Department. The rest were motorists who were either driving an unlicensed vehicle or had a suspended or revoked driver’s license.

In addition to the arrests, six citations were issued and six vehicles were towed from the scene, according to police.

The checkpoint was held on San Fernando Road near Palmer Avenue from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. and was funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety.
