Andres Jose-Juan of Amagansett was charged with two felonies on the morning of Jan. 12 after reportedly fleeing when police attempted to pull him over.

Police said Mr. Jose-Juan was headed south on Indian Wells Highway near Further Lane in Amagansett when they noticed an expired inspection sticker on his 2005 Ford and tried to flag him down. When he did not stop, they activated their overhead lights and tried again, this time near Skimhampton Road, but he then took off, according to the report, “at a reckless and unsafe speed.”

He turned right onto Montauk Highway, swerving to avoid a collision with an oncoming vehicle, and then left onto Oak Lane, finally pulling into the driveway of 73 Schellinger Road, where police caught up with him.

Mr. Jose-Juan, who was allegedly found to have a blood-alcohol-content of more than .18 of 1 percent, also had a previous drunken-driving conviction within the past 10 years, raising the current charges to felonies. He was additionally charged with three misdemeanors, one for fleeing the scene, another for obstructing governmental administration, and a third for reckless driving.

Another alcohol-related arrest reported by East Hampton Town police also took place in Amagansett. At 4 a.m. on Sunday, Erick Guerrero-Ojeda of East Hampton, 27, driving a 2019 BMW on Main Street near Hedges Lane, was clocked at 56 miles per hour in a 30 m.p.h. zone, police reported. He performed poorly on field sobriety tests, they said, and was subsequently charged with two misdemeanor counts of driving while intoxicated.

At around 2 a.m. on May 25, someone called the police after seeing social media posts of kids drinking on Big Albert's beach. Officers, approaching from the Barnes Hole entrance, observed about 100 youths partying around a beach fire with music playing from a speaker. Many of them fled into the dunes when they saw the police. "Although several cooperative youths assisted with cleanup, a significant amount of litter remained," police reported.
