  •     Sag Harbor Village police arrested a Bridgehampton man Friday on charges that he assaulted a couple and endangered the welfare of a child. It was at least the third time that William J. Walker, 32, has been arrested in the past two years, and the second time he has been charged with assault.

  •     East Hampton Town police have released two more reports on the nighttime prowlers who have lately been targeting high-end cars in Wainscott, where several late-model vehicles have been stolen, broken into, or rummaged through since the end of June.

  •     An East Hampton woman with serious facial injuries was brought before Justice Catherine Cahill on Monday to be arraigned on a charge of driving while intoxicated. Village police said Abigail M. Gallaher was riding a 2006 Vespa scooter when she crashed on Newtown Lane near the curve at Long Lane early Sunday evening.

  •     A Huntington man who chose to go before a jury rather than admit to a charge of driving while intoxicated was found guilty of the charge in East Hampton Justice Court on Friday.

  •     There were two incidents in local waters leading to arrests over the past week.

        The Halfback, a 1985 Viking vessel, was fishing for striped bass on a six-person charter cruise, about two miles east of the Montauk Lighthouse at the Pollack Rips, when it was approached from the port side by the Luna Sea, according to an East Hampton Town police report. The captain of the Halfback tried to radio the Luna Sea captain to warn of a potential collision but was unable to raise him.

  •     Car thieves with expensive tastes have targeted Wainscott in recent weeks, with at least three automobiles reported stolen since the end of June.

        A 2012 black Range Rover was stolen from a driveway on Two Rod Highway in the early morning hours of June 29. The owners told East Hampton Town police the car had been left unlocked overnight, with the keys in the center console.

  •     A trio of Noel Coward’s “after-dinner mints” is being served at the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall, and all in all they will leave a fine taste in your mouth.
        Directed by one of America’s theater treasures, Tony Walton, “Tonight at 8:30” consists of three Coward one-acts, with one intermission, which he performed during the 1930s with his longtime friend and working partner Gertrude Lawrence. The pair would tour across England together, each night presenting three of Coward’s 10 one-act plays.

  • Thomas Ravenel, a former South Carolina state treasurer who has reportedly been contemplating a return to political life, was arrested early this morning by East Hampton Village police and charged with drunken driving.
  • A bar patron who flooded the Sloppy Tuna in Montauk early Friday after he allegedly intentionally broke an overhead fire-sprinkler pipe, is facing a felony criminal mischief charge after causing extensive damage that forced the Montauk hotspot to briefly close.

  •     “We offer on-premises, heated, indoor, winter storage for your vehicle in our state-of-the-art, 12,000-square-foot facility,” Kalbacher’s Auto in Springs proudly states on its Web site.

        The problem, according to East Hampton Town’s chief building inspector, Tom Preiato, is that in 2006 the town planning board approved only half that for indoor car storage at the Fort Pond Boulevard site. And that discrepancy is part of what is holding up a certificate of occupancy for the property.
