The Hamptons saw a big turnout of tourists this past week, but it wasn’t the out-of-towners who were keeping the Police Blotter busy. Quite the opposite, in fact. The Mayor of North Haven was busted for DWI, which goes to show that nobody is above the law. Disorderly conduct hit Sag Harbor. And Old Man McGumbus was at it again. Here’s our lowdown on the highlights.
North Haven DWI
The Mayor of North Haven was arrested for DWI last week after she crashed her car and was so intoxicated that she was unable to perform field sobriety tests.
Old Man McGumbus, 104 years old and former WWII interrogation specialist, was arrested on Shelter Island last week after he was soliciting prostitutes in the dark and dangerous alley’s of the Shelter Island Boardwalk at 3 a.m. McGumbus picked up an undercover volunteer sting operative, Suzie McBisquick, a retired librarian, who is 53 years old. McGumbus, who used to be married to McBisquick for 28 years, is claiming that he was set up by McBisquick and who “is still madly in love with him.”
A fight broke out in Southampton involving two men who were fighting after one spit in the face of the other. During the scuffle, a woman who knew both the men was thrown into a car, causing a cut to her face.
A man in Sag Harbor was arrested after he was standing outside in the street intoxicated. When police ordered him to move on, he became aggressive. The man was so intoxicated that he began to yell at people who were passing by. Police called an ambulance for the man, but he became even more aggressive. And then, so you know, police just told the man to have a nice night…Okay, no, that’s not what happened. He was charged with disorderly conduct.
A man threatened another man with a baseball bat by walking onto his property armed with the weapon. He didn’t hit the man, but when he left, he was tracked down by police and later arrested for menacing with a weapon. This is the man’s first strike.
