Sobrinho was intoxicated and refused to take a breath test, police said.

Julie Willingham, 39, of Riverhead was arrested in Riverhead on Monday, July 23, and was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. Police said Willingham contacted them to check on the welfare of her boyfriend, but upon arrival and an initial interview with Willingham, further investigation revealed she was in possession of a glass pipe containing crack cocaine and marijuana. After checking on the welfare of her boyfriend, Willingham was transported back to the troopers’ Riverside barracks, police said.

All three were released with appearance tickets returnable to the courts of the jurisdictions in which they were arrested.
