The victim did not sustain any injuries, police said.


A 23-year-old Flanders man was charged with DWI Wednesday after he was spotted tossing a beer can out his car window, police said.

Wilian Siguenza Sanmartin was spotted by police shortly after 9:30 p.m. on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays. He was transported to headquarters and held for morning arraignment, police said.


A 32-year-old Riverhead man was charged with disorderly conduct shortly before 11 p.m. Wednesday for causing a disturbance near Marta’s Deli and Budget Host Motel in Flanders, police said.

Police said they found Jesse Huber near the motel where he was “cursing, yelling and bothering guests,” but only after they had received a phone call from an employee at the deli that he had already caused a scene there.
