Sag Harbor Village police spotted a blue Mercedes-Benz heading the wrong way on Washington Street, a one-way street, on the morning of May 6, and stopped the driver, Peter Dodge of Bridgehampton, at a traffic light on Main Street. A computer check revealed that his license had been suspended in 2018 for failure to pay a fine in Brooklyn, and he was charged with aggravated unlicensed vehicle operation.
Mr. Dodge is to appear in Sag Harbor Justice Court before Justice Lisa R. Rana tomorrow.
Also in Sag Harbor that morning, police noticed a gray GMC Envoy with no license plates, either front or back. After stopping the car at the intersection of Jermain Avenue and Madison Street, they reported that the driver spoke to them dismissively, and pulled out identification with the name Mu’Allim Dhakir Ghazwan El Dob. Although the ID was invalid, the name pulled up a hit on the computer, showing 16 suspensions. The driver of the car, which was neither registered nor insured, was correctly identified as William Bronson of Bridgehampton, whose driving privileges in New York State, according to police, have been revoked seven times.
He too is to appear before Justice Rana tomorrow. His vehicle was seized.
On May 7, after Jeriel J. Rivera-Carrero of Montauk kicked and broke some wooden posts supporting the horizontal deck railing of a house on South Elmwood Avenue there, he very much resisted arrest, according to East Hampton Town police, pulling away from officers as they struggled to handcuff him and falling to the ground. Eventually they walked him to the squad car, though a bit more effort was required to get him into the back seat. Once there, police said, he refused to be seat-belted, kicked the door to prevent them from closing it, and tried to stand up and escape.
He caused over $250 worth of damage to the deck, according to the report, bringing on a charge of third-degree criminal mischief as well as resisting arrest.
