Darius Dorph-Lowrie, 21, was charged with criminal contempt Saturday morning after Sag Harbor police said the village resident had ignored an active order of protection against him.
The holder of the order, Brieanna Brightman, was with him in his red 2016 Dodge Charger, police said, when it passed three cars in front and crossed a double yellow line. An e-justice computer system in the police car flashed and police stopped the Charger. Ms. Brightman, who was sitting in the front passenger seat, at first said her name was Jennifer and that she had no identification, but a photo check confirmed her identity, as did Mr. Dorph-Lowrie. He is to appear before Justice Lisa R. Rana tomorrow in Sag Harbor Village Court.
Routine traffic stops in East Hampton last week proved problematic for two drivers. Jose Solis of Riverhead, charged with aggravated unlicensed operation, will appear in East Hampton Town Court on Wednesday, as will Carlos Vargas of East Hampton, who faces a charge of operating with suspended registration.
Back in Sag Harbor, Cruz Barcenes of Huntington Station will appear in court there tomorrow on charges of speeding and unlicensed operation.
