Eight Open Alcohol Containers

Thu, 01/07/2021 - 06:24

There was only one arrest on drunken-driving charges in East Hampton Town last week. On Saturday afternoon, town police reported clocking Luis Sigua-Sisalima's green 2005 Kia minivan at 59 miles per hour in a 30-m.p.h. zone on Abraham's Path in East Hampton, near Accabonac Highway.

Officers said they counted eight open containers of alcohol in the minivan, adding that the driver performed poorly on roadside sobriety tests. Mr. Sigua-Sisalima, charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, was held overnight for a morning appearance in Justice Court before Justice Lisa R. Rana.

Alcohol was not a factor in three other recent arrests, including that of Martha Huanga of Montauk, who was spotted driving on New Year's Day. Town police charged her once again, as they had in early December, with aggravated unlicensed operation; she is to answer the charge on Wednesday.

Also charged with lack of driver's documentation were William Perez of Riverhead and Raula Barrera-Gomez of Holbrook, both accused of unlicensed operation, and Osm Chave-Barahon of Brentwood (driving with a suspended registration). Roberto Fernandez Benitez of Flushing was arraigned on Dec. 22 on a charge of lapsed registration.

Luca Muir, an East Hampton resident, was also arrested on New Year's Day, charged with menacing in the second degree. Village police said the charge followed an incident the day before, on Lumber Lane near the railroad station, but did not release further details by press time. The 18-year-old was to have appeared in court today.

Finally, Conception Choy-Nij of Montauk, 34, was summoned to be in court today for selling food without a license on public property at 65 Dunemere Lane in East Hampton Village.
