Over the weekend, two crashes — one involving a Riverhead police officer and the other in Greenport that involved two kids — resulted in driving while intoxicated arrests.
The officer was on patrol Friday on West Main Street in Riverhead, approaching the intersection of Kroemer Avenue at about 9:40 p.m., when he was struck by a vehicle traveling westbound on West Main Street. Neither of the parties involved sustained any injuries.
An investigation into the incident revealed the other driver, Marlon Uz-Cubule was under the influence. He was charged with misdemeanor aggravated D.W.I., as his blood alcohol level was reportedly above .18., as well as several other vehicle and traffic violations.
