Christopher Anstett

An allegedly drunk Riverhead man, who had been convicted of DWI before, led State Police on a high-speed chase through the area before crashing his car into a fence and tree Wednesday night, according to authorities.

A State Trooper found the blue Audi driven by Christopher Anstett, 39, stuck in a snowbank after an accident was reported on Flanders Road in Flanders about 11 a.m. The trooper activated his emergency lights as Mr. Anstett attempted to maneuver his car out of the snow. After Mr. Anstett freed his car, then sped past the trooper, leading him on a high-speed chase through the Riverhead area.

Mr. Anstett was unable to safely negotiate around the intersection of Duane Street and Sweezey Avenue in Riverhead and crashed his car into a fence and small tree.

Mr. Anstett fled the scene on foot, but was found a short time later on Marcy Avenue in Riverhead, the same block where he lives. He was charged with felony DWI due to a prior conviction, third-degree unlawful fleeing from police and several traffic violations. He is scheduled to appear in Riverhead Town Justice Court today.

  • Must have been PM. I’m sure troopers weren’t chasing after the fleeing car all day to find driver crashing in Riverhead Wednesday night.

  • Tommy (Bert Wheeler) and Gilbert (Robert Woolsey) have deserted the army and Paris are working with the girls to continue. Colonel Marshall (George MacFarlane) would like to stop. On the other hand, his daughter Annette (Dorothy Lee) will come Tommy and fall in like. Olga (Leni Stengel) meeting with Gilbert and fall in love. Annette has a approach that will likely be heroes and Tommy Gilbert ………… / Wheeler and Woolsey (the a single along with the glasses) act on various phases buildings, numerous of which are full of one-liners aren’t obvious and very funny. Dorothy Lee is very good in his scenes, whilst somewhat wooden at situations but it’s not poor which the actors portraying the military police. They are awful! Mrs. Marshall (Edna Could Oliver) would be the best of your / There are 3 great songs during the film the first dance with Lee and Wheeler (it really is incredibly awesome to look at), the second dance Wheeler, and Lee Wooster (see his previous landing and the following explanation while you leap a trucks), and you can find a funny moment within the restaurant the place Tommy, disguised like a waiter, serving foods to the colonel and his wife. It is your playground for entertainment not a disaster, however the film drags most of the time.
