Cops: Ex-con arrested following traffic stop

SH_CopsAn ex-convict was arrested yesterday morning after Southampton Police said he was driving his car in Riverside without an interlock device following a previous drunk driving conviction.

According to police, 33-year-old Daryl Gregory was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors: circumventing an interlock device and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle. Gregory was reportedly driving on Flanders Road around 11:15 a.m. when police pulled him over for a traffic violation and found out that his license was suspended and he was operating a vehicle without an interlock device – a requirement stemming from a prior DWI.

Sgt. Howard Kalb said Gregory had a conditional license, allowing him to drive to places such as work and medical appointments, however that was suspended when he failed to meet certain requirements.

According to the New York State Department of Corrections, Gregory has served prison time for convictions of both second-degree attempted robbery as well as criminal sale of a controlled substance in the third degree.

Gregory served nearly two years for the robbery conviction, before being released in 2000, and spent four years in prison from 2006 to 2010 for the drug conviction.

Gregory was arrested and according to Southampton Justice Court, made $250 cash bail after being arraigned and is due back in court on Friday.
