Two months after he was arrested for driving without an ignition-lock device, which measures the level of alcohol in a driver's blood before the engine can start, Carlos Segovia-Chacon of 7th Street in Springs, 37, was again charged with driving while intoxicated, as he had been in July 2013.

On Friday night, according to East Hampton Town police, Mr. Segovia was seen driving erratically on Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road and pulled over. Police said he failed roadside sobriety tests.

He now stands charged with two felonies as well as aggravated unlicensed operation, his driver's license having not been restored since the 2013 arrest. He was held overnight for a Saturday morning appearance in East Hampton Town Justice Court before Justice Lisa R. Rana, who released him on his own recognizance to await a future date in court.

In Montauk at around midnight last Thursday, a 2019 Toyota driven by an Oakdale man, John Olaf Enoksen, 57, was clocked at 57 miles per hour in a 30 m.p.h. zone on Route 27 near Twin Pond Lane. Police said they saw the car cross back and forth over the double yellow lines numerous times before it was stopped, and reported that the driver performed poorly on the field tests.

Mr. Enoksen was charged with misdemeanor drunken driving, a first offense, and appeared in Justice Court in the morning before Justice Steven Tekulsky. He was released on his own recognizance and will return to court in future.
