A hulking 46-year-old Flanders man is facing a slew of drugs and other charges after he allegedly attacked police officers who were responding to reports of a large fight in Flanders, Southampton Town Police said.
Police were called to the intersection of Cypress Avenue and Groves Drive about 3 p.m. last Monday for a loud dispute involving about 10 people.
When they got there, they didn’t see a fight, but they did see a man later identified as Robert Williams of Cypress Avenue getting into a 2002 Cadillac and attempted to drive off, officials said.
Officers pulled over the car, which police said smelled of marijuana, and Mr. Williams began fighting with them, resulting in an injury to a police officer, officials said.
Mr. Williams, who is listed at 300 pounds in a police report, was eventually subdued with pepper spray and charged with criminal possession of a marijuana, resisting arrest, obstructing government administration, harassment, assault, unlawful possession of marijuana and driving while ability impaired by drugs, authorities said.
He was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment related to the pepper spray, police said.
• A Riverhead man was arrested for allegedly hitting another man in the head with a piece of wood during a fight in the McDonald’s parking lot in Riverside last week, officials said.
Police were called to the McDonald’s on Flanders Road about 11:15 p.m. last Monday with a report of a fight in the parking lot.
When they got there, they found a man bleeding from the head, having been struck twice with a large piece of wood, police said.
Following a brief investigation in conjunction with New York State Police, Gerardo Nijchoy, 23, of East Avenue in Riverhead was arrested and charged with assault, criminal possession of a weapon and failure to appear in court on a previous unspecified charge, authorities said.
The victim was taken to Peconic Bay Medical Center for treatment.
• Pamela Reed, 47, of Albany Avenue in Flanders was charged Sept. 23 with prostitution on Albany Avenue after offered to have sex with an officer for money, police said.
• A 35-year-old Cutchogue woman reported that someone entered her car on West Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays last Wednesday and removed a GPS device valued at a $125.
Those who are named in police reports have not been convicted of any crime or violation. The charges against them may later be reduced or withdrawn, or they may be found innocent.
