Thu, 08/12/2021 - 11:41

A 78-year-old woman who lives on King's Point Road in Springs was arrested on Aug. 3, charged with menacing with a weapon and criminal mischief with intent to cause injury, misdemeanors. 

In a redacted report, East Hampton Town police said Susan Pashman was beachside off Springs-Fireplace Road on July 14 at about 4 p.m. when she picked up a rock during a dispute and threatened to hit a person whose name was withheld. Police also allege that Ms. Pashman broke the person's cellphone, by throwing it onto rocks at the beach. She was to have been arraigned this morning in East Hampton Justice Court.  

Carlos Rodriguez-Martinez, 34, of Gardiner Avenue in Springs used a knife last Thursday afternoon to slash a tire of a 1997 boat trailer outside his house, police said. The trailer's owner, Jose Zeledon-Davila, reported the alleged incident, and Mr. Rodriguez-Martinez was charged with misdemeanor criminal mischief with intent to damage property. He appeared before Justice Steven Tekulsky the next morning. 

Reckless driving and leaving the scene of an accident with injuries were the charges against Jose Gomez-Duarte, 21, of Route 114 in Sag Harbor, on July 29. As reported here last week, Joan Overlock of East Hampton sustained head injuries and a possible broken thumb after Mr. Gomez-Duarte drove his 2006 Pontiac into her 2017 Mini Cooper.

Detective Michael Cohen, who witnessed the accident on Springs-Fireplace Road near Fort Pond Boulevard in Springs and said he'd had to swerve to avoid the collision, stopped the driver as he reportedly tried to leave the scene. Mr. Gomez-Duarte appeared in court yesterday to answer the two misdemeanor charges.

Last Thursday morning Sag Harbor Village police charged William Perez-Lovato, 21, of East Hampton with aggravated unlicensed operation after he reportedly ran a stop sign at the intersection of Jermain Avenue and Division Street. He will be arraigned in Sag Harbor Justice Court tomorrow. 

Hunter Ackley of Parkton, Md., 26, was pulled over for a traffic violation on Amagansett Main Street near Miankoma Lane on the morning of Aug. 4 and hit with the same charge, as was Tevin Robinson, 29, of Roslyn, two hours later. Mr. Robinson was driving a motorcycle on Route 27 when he was stopped.

The third and fourth drivers charged with aggravated unlicensed driving were Lookesh Rattan, 25, of Brooklyn, who was pulled over last Thursday at 6 p.m. on Stephen Hand's Path in East Hampton, and Blanca Orellana-Luna, 57, of Calverton. Ms. Orellana-Luna had rear-ended a 2020 Nissan driven by James Bustamante, 57, of Coram, at the light on Montauk Highway at Wainscott Northwest Road, town police said. Her 2004 Hyundai had to be hauled off by Hammer Towing.

Mr. Ackley, Mr. Rattan, Mr. Robinson, and Ms. Orellana-Luna are all scheduled to appear in Justice Court on Wednesday.
