A Springs man who was charged early Saturday with driving while intoxicated appears likely to be indicted by a grand jury for felony D.W.I.
Geraldo M. Lligui, 63, was arraigned that morning before East Hampton Justice Lisa Rana, who was also on the bench in April 2011 when he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor drunken driving. She fined him $1,000 at the time.
A dispute between the parents of a 6-month-old baby in a trailer park in Montauk ended early last Thursday morning with both under arrest, the mother for allegedly stabbing the father, who, in turn, was charged with choking the mother. The woman told East Hampton Town police, however, that she was acting in self-defense, according to court records.
A Long Island Rail Road train headed for Montauk is being held up in Amityville after it struck and killed a man on the tracks on Saturday afternoon.
As police investigated, between 110 and 150 passengers were stuck on the eastbound train, which left Jamaica at 12:10 p.m. The accident occurred at about 12:45 p.m. The train was due in Montauk at 3 p.m.
Trains were delayed in both directions. Though service was expected to be restored soon, trains will be bypassing the Amityville station during the investigation.
