New York State police arrested two local men for allegedly driving drunk last week.
Hampton Bays resident Omar Soriano-Suarez, 27, was pulled over after troopers say the car he was driving failed to maintain its lane of travel on westbound Sunrise Highway, just east of exit 65 at about 3 AM on July 17. Upon further investigation, a trooper found Soriano-Suarez was drunk with a blood alcohol content of .10 percent, police said.
A trooper stopped Chestin Henry, 44, of Flanders, on County Road 105 in Riverhead at about 11:30 PM on July 20 because the car he was driving did not have a lamp illuminating its license plate. Further investigation found his BAC was .11 percent, police said.
Both Soriano-Suarez and Henry were released and issued appearance tickets returnable to Southampton Town Justice Court and Riverhead Town Justice Court, respectively.
