An East Quogue man, who police said was driving with a suspended license, was arrested in Riverside Monday for driving high and for having PCP on him, according to Southampton Town Police.

Shaun Worthington, 30, was pulled over on Old Quogue Road in Riverside about 11:30 a.m. and was found to be driving under the influence of drugs and also had a quantity of PCP, authorities said. Police did not specify if Mr. Worthington was driving under the influence of PCP or another drug.

He was charged with felony DUI due to the fact he had a prior drug-related conviction. Mr. Worthington was also charged with first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
