Two drivers in Suffolk were charged with DWI this weekend, though both incidents occurred under very different circumstances. The first driver attempted to evade police officers by driving the wrong way down Route 48 in Cutchogue before eventually stopping. She is charged with felony driving while intoxicated, and in all likelihood will also face other traffic tickets such as Driving in the Wrong Direction, a 3 point ticket.
The other driver was arrested and charged with violating Leandra’s Law because his 9-year-old daughter was a passenger in the car. It was also determined that he had been involved in a hit-and-run earlier in the night, which thankfully did not result in any injuries. The driver is charged with driving while ability impaired, endangering the welfare of a child, and leaving the scene of a reportable accident.
