Police arrested nine motorists Saturday on suspicion of drunk driving in the area of Montrose’s 34th annual Oktoberfest on Honolulu Avenue, officials said.
Officers from Glendale, Burbank and South Pasadena patrolled the area surrounding the Bavarian-themed event, which was held from noon to 11 p.m. on the 2300 and 2400 block of Honolulu Avenue, as part of the “Avoid the 100” anti-DUI campaign, police said.
Police stopped 75 vehicles during saturation patrols, and administered 17 sobriety tests on motorists, Glendale Police Sgt. Michael Glassick said.
Eight vehicles were also impounded and two motorists were arrested on suspicion of driving without a valid license or with a suspended or revoked license, he said.
