An accident in East Hampton Village at 5 p.m. last Thursday tied up traffic for a while in the vicinity of North Main Street by Hook Mill Road.
Evan Foulke, 27, of Ocean City, N.J., driving a 2001 BMW, drove out of his lane, village police said, and into a 2008 Chevrolet belonging to Alexis Rodriguez, 45, of Hampton Bays. Mr. Foulke, who admitted to having had "four beers" and reportedly failed roadside sobriety tests, was taken back to Cedar Street headquarters, where police said testing showed him to have twice the legal limit of alcohol in his blood. Charged with misdemeanor drunken driving, he was held for a Friday morning arraignment in East Hampton Town Justice Court. No injuries were reported from the accident.
Two other drivers, one in Montauk and the other in Springs, were similarly charged in recent weeks. Omar Anis, 24, of
Medford, N.J., was headed south on Old Montauk Highway near Cemetery Road in Montauk on the night of July 18 when he crossed the double yellow lines and stopped his 2013 Jeep in the oncoming lane. Police found him there, and took him into custody after administering unsatisfactory field tests. He was arraigned the next morning.
Diego Villalta-Villalta of East Hampton, 31, driving a 2003 Ford at about 1:30 a.m. on July 14 on Springs-Fireplace Road near Queen's Lane in Springs, was clocked at 56 miles per hour in a 40 m.p.h. zone, police said. He appeared before Justice Steven Tekulsky in the morning to answer misdemeanor charges of driving while intoxicated and speeding.
