New York State Police said a drunk man behind the wheel pulled into their barracks last Thursday, mistakenly thinking it was a roadway.

He reportedly tried to leave the premises after pulling into the rear parking lot in a black Dodge pick-up truck, though was immediately stopped by troopers.

According to police, James A. Griffin, a 47-year-old from Portland Maine, was arrested on a misdemeanor driving while intoxicated charges after the incident.

Police said Mr. Griffin’s blood alcohol level was 0.10 percent, and later released him on an appearance ticket to Southampton Town Justice Court. He’s due back on Feb. 12.

In a separate incident, police arrested 61-year-old John P. MgGloine on a misdemeanor DWI charge after they said he slid off the roadway last Tuesday on Route 27 in Southampton. He is due back in court on Feb. 3.
