An accident on North Ferry Road led to the arrest by Shelter Island police on a misdemeanor charge of drunken driving the afternoon of Monday, August 20.
According to a press release sent out by the police, Scott Lechmanski, 57, was arrested after an accident involving the 2009 Ford pick up truck he was said to be driving. He failed sobriety tests, and a breath test at headquarters came back with a reading positive for intoxication, according to the police.
However, Lechmanski finds himself in a tight spot, legally, since he also has an open case in Southampton Town Justice Court on a charge of driving with ability impaired by drugs, also a misdemeanor, following an arrest in July 2017.
Bail was set in the Shelter Island case at $1000, which was posted.
