Unlike last year, no arrests made at 2012 Oktoberfest in Montrose

Glendale police reported making no arrests at Montrose's annual Oktoberfest on Honolulu Avenue this past weekend.

The event brought out thousands of people, lured by the Bavarian cuisine, beer and carnival rides in the 2300 and 2400 blocks of Honolulu Avenue.

Police officials said the event, which went from noon to 11 p.m., went smoothly.

Last year, police arrested nine motorists on suspicion of drunk driving during an “Avoid the 100” anti-DUI checkpoint. Another five people were arrested in connection with narcotics violations.

Police also encountered several festival attendees who were allegedly drunk in public at last year’s event.
