Say Both Drivers Were Drunk

    Two men were charged with driving while impaired last Thursday after police said they crashed their cars into each other at the intersection of King Street and Gingerbread Lane in East Hampton Village.
    Peter D. Grabowski, 28, did not stop at the stop sign on King Street, he told police, and Jason B. Carey, 39, who was headed down Gingerbread Lane, crashed into him at around 7:30 p.m.
    East Hampton Village police said both men appeared to be intoxicated. They charged Mr. Grabowski with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and Mr. Carey with driving while ability impaired, a violation.
    Mr. Grabowski’s arrest report indicated that there is an active warrant for his arrest from the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. Although he lives in Sag Harbor, Mr. Grabowski is reportedly a citizen of Australia.
    He was additionally charged with driving without a license and failing to stop at a stop sign, both violations.
    Both men were held overnight by police and arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice Court. Mr. Carey, who also lives in Sag Harbor, was arraigned by East Hampton Town Justice Lisa R. Rana and released on his own recognizance. Justice Rana released Mr. Grabowski on $1,000 bail.
    Village police nabbed another man they said was driving while intoxicated at 3:30 last Thursday morning.
    In addition to three driving while intoxicated charges, Ian Kelleher of Wainscott picked up a felony aggravated driving without a license charge. Mr. Kelleher also faced an elevated charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated.
    According to police, Mr. Kelleher moved from his lane unsafely and drove on the shoulder of Montauk Highway near Jericho Road that morning. He told police he had had “two or three vodkas” and allegedly failed roadside sobriety tests.
    Mr. Kelleher was also charged with moving from his lane unsafely, a misdemeanor. He was also cited for four violations, including failing to use a designated lane, driving on the shoulder, driving without a license, and driving without insurance.
    Justice Rana released Mr. Kelleher, 35, later that morning on $2,500 bail.
    Last Thursday, police charged Colin C. Keillor of East Hampton Village with driving while intoxicated and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. Police said they found a prescription bottle with the label removed after they arrested Mr. Keillor at 12:50 a.m.
    According to reports, Mr. Keillor did not stop at the intersection of Cove Hollow Road and Route 114. Upon stopping him, police said he was unsteady on his feet and put him into a police vehicle. When an officer attempted to move Mr. Keillor’s car off the roadway, he found the prescription bottle. Police did not say what was in the bottle that would warrant the misdemeanor possession charge.
    Justice Rana released Mr. Keillor, 36, later that morning on $500 bail.
    On Feb. 16, East Hampton Town police charged Rosemarie A. Rash with driving while intoxicated after she allegedly failed to dim her high-beams when approaching an officer on Abraham’s Path near Accabonac Road in East Hampton.
    Police said Ms. Rash, who lives in Montauk, drove into the oncoming lane of traffic and then fumbled for her identification when she was pulled over by police. According to reports, Ms. Rash was “swaying forwards and backwards and had to raise her arms to keep herself balanced.”
    Ms. Rash, 69, was held overnight by police and arraigned the following morning by East Hampton Town Justice Catherine A. Cahill, who released her on her own recognizance.
