The 20-year-old driver of a 1988 Chevrolet Corvette was flown by helicopter to Stony Brook University Medical Center just before midnight Monday after his car crashed off Hand’s Creek Road in East Hampton.
Alexis Rivera Narvez, whose unidentified male passenger was taken to Southampton Hospital, faces a charge of driving while intoxicated in the incident. East Hampton Town Police Detective Lt. Chris Anderson said yesterday that Mr. Narvez was pinned inside the wrecked Corvette and had to be cut out by the East Hampton Fire Department.
Because he refused at the hospital to have his blood drawn for an alcohol test, Mr. Narvez’s license was automatically suspended. He will be arraigned in East Hampton Justice Court within the next few weeks.
A driver who had an accident near his own driveway was similarly charged on the night of Sept. 11. Manuel Chillogalli of East Hampton, 35, missed his Muir Boulevard driveway and struck a large decorative boulder, according to police, who said he displayed signs of intoxication and failed roadside sobriety tests.
Back at Wainscott headquarters, his blood-alcohol level was recorded at .17, over twice the legal limit. Mr. Chillogalli, a longtime resident of East Hampton, was released the next morning after posting $350 bail.
East Hampton Village police charged Corinthia L. Polesello, 37, of Bridgehampton with aggravated drunken driving early Sunday morning after stopping her 2003 Mercedes-Benz on Newtown Lane near McGuirk Street for a broken taillight. At Cedar Street headquarters her blood-alcohol reading was reportedly .26, more than three times the legal limit and well over the .18 reading that triggers the charge. She was additionally charged with driving with a suspended license. Justice Catherine A. Cahill set bail later that morning at $500.
Angel N. Namina-Carchipulla of East Hampton, 35, was pulled over for a traffic infraction on Old Fireplace Road in Springs late Sunday night and found to be intoxicated, according to town police. In court in the morning, Justice Cahill read the stationhouse breath test result of .12 and told the man, speaking through a translator, that his license was suspended and there would be serious repercussions if he were caught driving.
She asked if he had any questions. He whispered to the translator, who then asked, “How is he going to get to work? He works in Southampton.”
“You simply cannot drive. Period, end of story,” the justice answered. Mr. Namina-Carchipulla was released after posting $350 bail.
Also charged with D.W.I. this past week was Jarma Gonzalo, 26, of East Hampton, who was stopped Friday night on Route 27 near Green Hollow Road after crossing the double yellow line, according to police. His alcohol level was said to be .14, and he was released after arraignment in the morning on $350 bail.
