A Mastic man was arrested early last Tuesday for drunken driving along Flanders Road near Long Neck Boulevard in Flanders, police said.

He was stopped and observed to have glassy eyes, droopy eyelids and the smell of alcohol on his breath, police said. He was found to be intoxicated, police said.

Mr. Kontos was charged with DWI and two violations, according to police.

• Samara Sarasky-Guzman, 24, of New Rochelle was arrested for drunken driving last Thursday night after she drove through the Riverside traffic circle, off the road and into the woods, police said.
