Following an investigation into a March 2 domestic incident at the Accabonac Apartments in East Hampton, Koorosh Farahani, 49, a resident there, stands charged with felony criminal mischief and two counts of second-degree harassment.

At the time, police reported that an "emotionally disturbed" Mr. Farahani had "barricaded himself inside while throwing objects at police from a second-floor window and threatening violence," after attacking both his parents and causing more than $250 damage to their apartment. He made an initial appearance in East Hampton Justice Court last Thursday.

Bari McCabe of East Hanover, N.J., a passenger in a 2021 Audi, was charged just after midnight on March 8 with criminal possession of a controlled substance, which town police said was cocaine. Police, who stopped the Audi near Second House Road in Montauk, said they found the alleged cocaine, as well as marijuana, in small Ziploc bags in a purse where the 33-year-old was sitting. The driver of the car was not identified. A morning arraignment followed, and Ms. McCabe was to be back in court today. 

Geovanni Garcia Garcia of Springs was arrested on the afternoon of March 9 at his home on Gardiner's Lane, on a charge of harassment second degree, and will appear in Justice Court on Wednesday. Police did not disclose the nature of the incident, but listed a 2007 Acura as a vehicle involved. Officers responded after the unidentified victim placed Mr. Garcia under civilian arrest at 104 Dayton Lane, East Hampton, where the incident took place.

Several drivers stopped for traffic infractions last week wound up charged with lacking licenses, registration, or both. They included Wilian Escobar of Copiague and Oscar Carbajalcurado of Riverhead, who are due in court tomorrow, and David Beach of New York City, who will be arraigned on April 2. Two others, Norman Jimenez of Huntington Station and Lamar Peters of East Hampton, will appear in court on Wednesday.
