A Flanders man whose license had been revoked for a prior DWI conviction is facing felony charges after he was arrested for drunken driving early on New Year’s Day, Southampton police said.

After his arrest, officers found that Mr. Vasquez had previously been convicted of DWI and had his license revoked as part of his sentence.

He was charged with felony driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed driving, also a felony.

He was processed at Southampton Town police headquarters and held for a morning arraignment.
