New York State Troopers made two arrests on misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charges in Hampton Bays, plus another one in Riverhead, this past week.
The two Hampton Bays arrests occurred during the early morning hours of Sunday, January 27. Hubert Reyes-Muralles, 35, of Riverhead, was driving on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays when he was pulled over on a traffic stop. State police said that Reyes-Muralles failed roadside sobriety tests, and was arrested on the DWI charge.
At headquarters, his breath test produced a reading of .08 of one percent, the lowest reading that qualifies as intoxication. He was released by police with an appearance ticket, to be arraigned Tuesday, February 5, at the Southampton Town Justice Court.
About an hour after Reyes-Muralles was arrested, troopers pulled over Jorge Villalta-Nieto, 35, of Hampton Bays on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays. He too was said to have failed sobriety tests, leading to his arrest. Villalta-Nieto was released on an appearance ticket returnable on February 4 at the Southampton Court.
The Riverhead DWI arrest happened a little after midnight Friday, January 25. Dallas Johnson, 43, of Riverhead, was driving on Old Country Road when he was stopped for an alleged traffic violation. Police said Johnson was drunk, and refused to take the breath test. He was arraigned Saturday morning. The terms of his arraignment are not known.
