Arrested by EHTP on charge of aggravated drunken driving after roll-over accident

Two Aggravated DWIs




A Northwest Woods resident was arrested by East Hampton Town police on a misdemeanor charge of aggravated drunken driving after being involved in a roll-over accident on Crystal Drive in Springs.

Erik Miguel Rocha-Gallegos, 25, was driving a 2011 Chevrolet Suburban a little after 9 AM Sunday, April 26, when he lost control of it, police said. The Chevrolet left the road, struck a brick barrier and a tree, then rolled over. The tree came down on top of a parked 2003 Volkswagen. Rocha-Gallegos was standing outside the vehicle when police arrived, and allegedly offered no explanation for what had happened.

At police headquarters, a breath test allegedly indicated there was enough alcohol in Rocha-Gallegos’s system to justify the raised aggravated driving while intoxicated charge. He was held until he could be arraigned the following day, and was then released.

Sag Harbor Village police recently arrested a village resident, also on an aggravated DWI charge. Sofia Fernandez-Nava, 22, was pulled over on Brick Kiln Road for allegedly driving a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee on a driver’s-side tire so flat it was down to the rim. The arrest happened early morning March 30. Fernandez-Nava’s breath test at Division Street headquarters produced a high reading, police said. She will be arraigned at a future date.
