An East Hampton Town police officer on patrol at 2 a.m. on Sunday saw a gray Volkswagen Jetta cross over the yellow lines into oncoming traffic before making a right-hand turn onto Woodbine Drive in Springs, police said.
When the officer asked the driver, Edison E. Guzman, who is 27 and lives in East Hampton, for his license, he handed over an Ecuadorean passport.
Mr. Guzman subsequently had difficulty performing roadside sobriety tests and was arrested, police said. At police headquarters in Wainscott, a breath test revealed his blood alcohol level to be .21, according to police. Because that level was allegedly above .18, he was charged with misdemeanor aggravated driving while intoxicated. Bail was set later that day at $750.
Also in the early morning hours on Sunday, a blown stop sign led to the arrest of the driver of a black Jeep Wrangler on a D.W.I. charge, according to town police.
Tevis R. Thompson, 39, of Key Largo, Fla., was driving on Old Stone Highway in Springs when he ran a stop sign while turning south onto Springs-Fireplace Road at 50 miles per hour in a 30-miles-per-hour zone, the police report said. The officer followed.
Mr. Thompson then turned right onto Gardiner Avenue, and the car slid onto the shoulder. At that point, the officer pulled over Mr. Thompson, who got out of the car with great difficulty, almost falling down but catching himself on a door, police said. He was charged with driving while intoxicated. Bail was set at $300 later that day.
The driver of a 2006 Toyota apparently sped his way to a D.W.I. arrest, the third such arrest early on Sunday.
According to the police report, a little before 4 a.m. Domingo Fernandez, who turned 22 yesterday, was driving east on Gardiner Avenue in Springs, doing 48 miles per hour in a 30-m.p.h. zone past an officer.
After reportedly failing a breath test at headquarters, Mr. Fernandez was charged with driving while intoxicated. Bail was set at $350.
Driving in the early dawn without headlights on resulted in a fourth driving while intoxicated arrest Sunday, according to police.
Ryan A. Crozier of East Hampton was driving north on Springs-Fireplace Road with his headlights off at about 5:30 a.m. and weaving across the double yellow lines as he passed an officer, police said. The officer switched her police lights on but Mr. Crozier, 26, continued driving, turning left onto Gardiner Avenue before coming to a stop on the shoulder of the road, the report said.
At headquarters, Mr. Crozier allegedly registered a reading of .21 on a breath test and he was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated. Bail was set at $200.

An officer on patrol at about 8 a.m. on April 17 spotted a red 1999 Ford Econoline van tailgating another vehicle headed west on Montauk Highway near Buckskill Road, according to the police report.
