Police said 49-year-old Benigno Boch-Coc was observing walking along Flanders Road near Longneck Boulevard, weaving in and out of traffic on the busy street about 7 p.m. Mr. Boch-Coc, who police said was “highly intoxicated,” was found to be in possession of forged identification papers. It is not clear if Mr. Boch-Coc offered the documents to police or if they found them after a search.

Police did not say what country Mr. Boch-Koc was originally from.

Mr. Boch-Coc was charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument and disorderly conduct. He was taken to Southampton Town Police headquarters and held overnight for a court appearance.
