There were six arrests on the charge of driving while intoxicated this past week in the town of East Hampton, and an East Hampton man was arrested on the same charge in Southampton.
On Friday night, a 1997 Nissan Sentra heading west on Kings Court in Springs crashed into a 2008 Nissan pickup truck parked across the road. East Hampton Town police said the driver of the Sentra, Ivan V. Narvaez-Bermeo, 37, of East Hampton appeared intoxicated and had him perform roadside sobriety tests, which he reportedly failed. He spent the night at headquarters after his blood alcohol level was reported to be .17, and was released in the morning on $400 bail.
Rene V. Gallegos-Saquicaray of Springs, who is a few days short of his 24th birthday, was arraigned on a D.W.I. charge on Saturday. Police had followed him at about 2:45 that morning, when his Dodge pickup truck was seen pulling into, then backing out of, several driveways on Bowling Green Drive, Springs. He then drove to Springs-Fireplace Road and turned off onto Church Lane, where he again pulled into a driveway before backing out and returning, without signaling, to Springs-Fireplace. He reportedly performed poorly on all field tests.
A charge of aggravated unlicensed driving was added at headquarters; police said he had failed to answer a summons last month.
In court later that morning, Mr. Gallegos-Saquicaray told Justice Lisa Rana via a translator that the summonses had been dealt with by his attorney. “These things do happen sometimes with the D.M.V.,” the justice responded as she set bail at $400.
Victor E. Barrera-Guillen of East Hampton, 30, was arrested shortly before 2 a.m. on Sunday. Town police said his 2008 Toyota Tacoma was swerving across the lane lines on Three Mile Harbor Road. He was pulled over near Neighborhood House Drive, and reportedly failed roadside tests.
On April 16, Carlos M. Rodriguez, 24, of Springs was driving erratically at 70 miles per hour on Napeague, officers reported. He was pulled over near Marlin Drive at about 1 a.m. and did not perform successfully on field tests. His bail was set at $350.
Sean Scanlon was stopped Sunday night on Montauk Highway; he too was said to have failed roadside tests. His blood-alcohol content was recorded at the station house at .15, almost twice the legal limit.
At his arraignment in the morning, his attorney, Gordon Ryan, asked that he be released without bail, due to longtime roots in the community. Justice Rana agreed. Mr. Scanlon will return to court at a future date.
Felix A. Serna-Quintero, 29, of East Hampton was arrested on a drunken-driving charge on April 15 at about 2:20 a.m. At the station house, his blood-alcohol content was reported to be .20, raising the charge to an aggravated level. He was released later that morning without bail, due to his local roots, but with a future date on the court calendar.
Southampton Town police reported the arrest of James D. Selberg-Stross, 22, of East Hampton at about 5:30 a.m. on April 17. He was pulled over for speeding on Snake Hollow Road in Bridgehampton, where he also ran a stop sign, according to the arresting officer. He was arraigned in Southampton Town Court; bail was not immediately available.
