LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — More than 500 people were arrested for DUIs this holiday weekend.

Law enforcement agencies said the number would climb as they were still calculating reports and counting until midnight.

From 12:01 a.m. Friday through midnight Sunday, officers representing 100 county law enforcement agencies have arrested 529 people for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

The arrests were made during the  “Avoid the 100 Los Angeles County DUI Campaign.”

The LA County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind motorists if they see someone driving erratically to call 911 immediately.
