Town police received a report from Southampton Hospital in the early hours of Nov. 18 that a man had been struck with a belt hard enough to damage his eye to the point that he might lose vision in it.
The man, Carlos Cevarros, told police he and his friends had gone to an address on Lincoln Avenue in Springs to join a Bingo party, but were turned away at the door. Guillermo T. Pillco allegedly pulled off his belt and struck Mr. Cevarros with it after exchanging words about a woman in Mr. Cevarros’s party.
A 2011 BMW led police on a high-speed chase at midnight last Saturday that ended in the arrest of the driver, Kyle B. Ballou, 23, of East Hampton, on multiple charges including drunken driving.
East Hampton Town police first spotted the BMW speeding west on Montauk Highway near Cove Hollow Road, crossing lane lines to pass cars ahead. An officer activated his lights and siren, but Mr. Ballou, after momentarily pulling off the road, turned around and sped off to the east, quickly exceeding 100 miles per hour, according to the report.
