From a Nassau County suburb to Ankara to Okinawa to Amagansett, the path of life for Michael Jeffrey Griffith has been anything but dull, and now his story has become the inspiration for a new television series, with Michael S. Chernuchin, part of the creative team of the long-running “Law and Order” series, in charge.

A report of an erratic driver leaving Bay Street, headed over the North Haven Bridge, led to the arrest on Saturday afternoon of a 29-year-old East Hampton man on a felony charge of driving while intoxicated. Sag Harbor police said the man, Romulo Quezada-Santos, had his 7-year-old son in the back seat, where empty beer cans were strewn about. The child’s presence elevated the charge to a felony.
