Two brothers were charged with driving while intoxicated on Friday night in Springs.
East Hampton Town police first pulled over a 2005 Dodge Neon driven by Milton G. Anguisaca-Buestan, 22, of Springs, on Cedar Ridge Drive near Woodcock Lane, at about 11:40 p.m. Police said the car’s license plate lights were not working and the driver had failed to maintain his lane of travel. He admitted to drinking one Corona beer but appeared intoxicated, and his blood-alcohol level was reportedly .16. He was charged with misdemeanor D.W.I. at about midnight.
While police took him to headquarters in Wainscott for booking and to await morning arraignment, his older brother, Claudio R. Anguisaca-Buestan, 27, got behind the wheel of the Neon and drove off. At about 12:15 a.m., another officer noticed the car, still with its inoperable license plate lights, run a stop sign and turn right without signaling, on Cedar Ridge Drive near Clinton Street. He too appeared intoxicated when he was pulled over. His blood-alcohol level was .12, and he admitted to drinking two beers “a little while ago,” his arrest report said. He was arrested at about 12:40 p.m. and taken to headquarters, where he waited with his brother for a morning arraignment.
Justice Steven Tekulsky arraigned and released the older brother on his own recognizance, but the younger brother had to post $250 bail before being freed.
Three out-of-towners were also charged with drunken driving charges over the holiday week. Anthony F. Frascone, 53, of Suffern, N.Y., driving a 1995 Mitsubishi, was stopped on Abram’s Landing Road, near Old Stone Highway in Amagansett, on July 4 at about 9:30 p.m. Police said he had not signaled a turn. He was charged with aggravated D.W.I. a misdemeanor, because his blood alcohol level was reported above .18, over twice the legal level. He was held overnight for arraignment; Justice Lisa R. Rana released him on $100 bail.
man from Prairie Village, Kan., was charged with misdemeanor D.W.I. in Montauk on July 2. Police said Ryan Michael Powell, 44, who was driving a 2019 Mitsubishi with Massachusetts plates south on West Lake Drive near Gloucester Avenue, had no headlights on when he was stopped at 9:20 p.m. He was held overnight for arraignment and released by Justice Rana in the morning on $450 bail.
Jill Rebecca Rutsky, 52, of Weston, Conn., was stopped for allegedly speeding on Abraham’s Path, near Birdie Lane in Amagansett, on July 3 at about 11:37 p.m. A report said her 2014 Hyundai was clocked at 48 miles per hour in a 30 m.p.h. zone, and that the car had crossed the white line into the shoulder numerous times. Ms. Rutsky was charged with misdemeanor D.W.I. and held overnight. She was released on her own recognizance last Thursday.
