A man with an outstanding bench warrant in Southampton court was arrested Saturday evening for disorderly conduct after he was found “highly intoxicated” and walking in the road in Flanders, Southampton police said.

Police said they saw Juan Lorenzo, 26, of Flanders on Flanders Road and Pleasure Drive about 6:40 p.m. Mr. Lorenzo was allegedly drunk and was obstructing traffic by walking in the northbound lane of Flanders Road, causing oncoming vehicles to swerve to avoid hitting him, police said. He was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, a violation, according to a police report.

Mr. Lorenzo also had an outstanding bench warrant out of Southampton Town Justice Court stemming from a Oct. 2009 unlawful possession of marijuana charge. He was processed and held at Southampton police headquarters for arraignment Sunday morning.
