D.W.I. Charges for Two Drivers

Thu, 05/20/2021 - 08:59

Police this week charged two people with driving while intoxicated and booked seven others on traffic and trespassing misdemeanors.

Elena Tomasino was one of two people arrested this week in East Hampton on charges of driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. Just after midnight on Friday, the 38-year-old from Sagaponack was driving her black 2020 Dodge Ram west on Montauk Highway near Bunker Hill Road in Amagansett when, East Hampton Town police said, she failed to keep right and hit a utility pole after having drifted into the oncoming lane. She did poorly on sobriety tests, the report said, and though she did not complain of injury, she was transported to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital just in case. She was held in custody until later that morning for arraignment by Justice Steven Tekulsky.

Upon making an arrest for a charge of driving while intoxicated, town police said that Jordan Oney, 26, of Deforest Road in Montauk, was also allegedly driving with his blood-alcohol level more than two times the legal limit. Mr. Oney was flagged on May 7 around midnight as he sat in the driver's seat of a parked but running car on Montauk Highway near South Etna Avenue in Montauk. Police said that both his front and rear left tires obstructed the westbound lane of traffic, while the rest of his 2009 Hyundai was in the shoulder. Officers accused him of being intoxicated, and he was arraigned on the two misdemeanor charges later that morning.

Three motorists will be arraigned tomorrow by Justice Lisa Rana in Sag Harbor Village Justice Court following their arrests this week for allegedly driving with suspended registrations. Michael O'Donnell of Dumont, N.J., was pulled over as he headed north on Main Street, as was Kyle Fletcher of Sag Harbor as he traveled west on Jermain Avenue. Manuel Espana of Mastic Beach was stopped on Jermain Avenue at Palmer Terrace and faces the same charge.

Three more people were accused of traffic infractions in East Hampton Town. Pulled over at Montauk Highway and Wainscott Stone Road, Gerhard Hagn of Squires Path in East Hampton was charged with aggravated unlicensed operation, a misdemeanor. Tevin Campbell of Corbin Avenue in Springs was booked for allegedly doing the same on Pantigo Road in East Hampton. Town police charged Michael Desimone of Cape Coral, Fla., with alleged unregistered driving when he was also on Pantigo Road this week. All three will appear in East Hampton Town Justice Court on Wednesday.

On April 30 shortly after 2 p.m., Doriel Darbyshire of Brooklyn was arrested at private property at 835 Montauk Highway in Montauk on misdemeanor charges of criminal trespassing in the third degree, a charge levied when a defendant allegedly enters a fenced-off or enclosed property, and trespassing in the second degree, for alleged unlawful entrance into a house. He was arraigned last Thursday morning.
