East Hampton Town police made five arrests this past week on misdemeanor drunken driving charges. Bianca Jebbia, wife of the designer James Jebbia, was one of those arrested.
Jebbia, 44, who shares residences with her family in Greenwich Village and Springs, was driving a 2013 BMW on Three Mile Harbor Road around midnight on August 28 when she was pulled over for allegedly failing to signal a turn. She was released without bail after being arraigned the next morning.
Kathryn Moffett, 49, of Brooklyn, was driving a 2016 BMW when she was stopped on Bluff Road in Amagansett late Friday night, August 31. Police said she ran the stop sign at Atlantic Avenue. Kimberly Greene, 39, of Springs was stopped about two hours later in a 2011 Toyota Camry on Abrahams Path, also in Amagansett, for allegedly swerving across lane lines. Moffett posted $250 bail after being arraigned Saturday morning, while Greene was released without bail, due to her local ties.
East Hampton Town Justice Steven Tekulsky expressed some concern during Greene’s arraignment, saying that it appeared that she had a prior conviction in 2015 in Southampton Village on a charge of driving with ability impaired by alcohol, which is a violation, not a misdemeanor.
Two men were arrested Sunday night, after failing roadside sobriety tests. Robert Russo, 32, of Rye, was pulled over on Montauk Highway in a 2013 BMW a little west of Montauk Point. Police said he had been involved in a “disturbance,” apparently at the Montauk Lighthouse, and was stopped as part of their investigation. Andres Jose Juan, 22, of Springs, was driving a 2000 Ford van when he was pulled over on Abrahams Path in Amagansett for allegedly swerving across lane lines. Juan was also charged with an additional misdemeanor: Police said he was driving without a license. Both were released on $250 bail Labor Day morning after being arraigned.
