The results of a blood test could have serious legal ramifications for a Florida man who is staying with his girlfriend in East Hampton.
East Hampton Town police say that Patrick J. Dowd of Indiantown, 27, was driving Sunday night with a Montauk woman in front and her 1-year-old in a safety seat in back, when he veered back and forth over the double yellow line on Flamingo Avenue. An officer pulled him over on Industrial Road, near where it curves into Second House Road.
A brand-new black 2013 Mercedes-Benz S.U.V. is the latest luxury car stolen overnight around Wainscott this summer. Its owner, Marisa Cicco of New York City, called East Hampton Town police on the morning of Aug. 6 to report the theft.
The Mercedes had been parked in her driveway on Westwood Road the night before. It was purchased six weeks earlier for a reported $180,000.
