East Hampton: One DWI, Five Stolen ‘Tombstones’




Everyone must have been at the movies. East Hampton town police recorded only one driving while intoxicated arrest over the past week. No DWIs were reported by village cops.

On October 20, at about 9:34 PM, East Hampton Town Police said they spotted a 2001 Nissan without a headlight. The driver was Jose Llivisaca-Nievea, 45, of Soak Hides Road in East Hampton. Police said he failed field sobriety tests and was charged with driving while intoxicated. Llivisaca-Nievea was held for arraignment the following morning.

A Sherrill Road resident in East Hampton was asleep at about 3 AM on October 16 when he heard a dog barking. He noticed a dark-colored car, possibly a Honda, in front of his house. As he approached, the car sped away and he noticed five Halloween tombstones were gone from the front yard. As legend has it, come Halloween night, the tombstones will be replaced in the ground — by five corpses, all of whom are reading this now. Are you one of them?
