Police arrested eight motorists Saturday in Glendale and Pasadena during a countywide crackdown on driving while under the influence of alcohol and other drugs.

Glendale and Pasadena police heavily patrolled the cities and looked for any motorists who were driving while impaired.

Of the 91 vehicles officers stopped, they arrested four drivers for allegedly being drunk and another four for driving while allegedly under the influence of drugs, according to Glendale police spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot.

The increased patrol effort is part of a holiday crackdown that started Dec. 13 in the region.

Police have arrested at least 684 drivers throughout the county during the crackdown’s first week.

Law enforcement agencies plan to step up patrols, organize DUI checkpoints and conduct sweeps for intoxicated drivers.

Glendale and Burbank police plan to patrol with strict DUI enforcement on Dec. 27 and 28.
