A recent sobriety checkpoint in Glendale broke regional records when police arrested 12 motorists on suspicion of driving under the influence, officials said.

The checkpoint was set up Brand Boulevard and Vassar Street from Friday to Sunday, the Glendale News-Press reported.

Most police checkpoints yield two to four intoxicated driving arrests, but Glendale police surpassed those averages for their region, said Community Service Officer Wendy Brewer, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County law enforcement anti-DUI campaign.

“That’s just unheard of for our area,” she said.
