Southampton blotter: Fake name given after arrest at traffic circle

Police arrested a Bay Shore man last Wednesday for driving with a suspended license after he was allegedly seen driving around the traffic circle in Riverside.

Wayne Cherry, 31, was seen driving around the traffic circle twice with a cracked windshield and noxious exhaust at around 12:25 p.m., police said. Once pulled over, Mr. Wayne gave the officer a false name. The officer learned that Mr. Wayne had his license suspended eight times and was in violation of a stay away order of protection, police said.

He was charged with first-degree criminal contempt, a felony, second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, false personation, both misdemeanors, and numerous traffic violations.
