An unlicensed Flanders man was arrested Thanksgiving night after police found he was driving drunk at the time he was involved in a minor crash in a Southampton parking lot, Southampton Town Police said.

Marco Hernandez, 33, was backing up at a gas station on County Road 39 in Southampton when the accident occurred around 8:45 p.m. Thursday, police said.

He was charged with DWI and driving without a license and cited for backing up unsafely, police said. He was held overnight for a Friday morning arraignment.
