Southampton blotter: Driver arrested on DWI charges in Flanders

Southampton Town police arrested a Bay Shore woman for aggravated driving while intoxicated in Flanders last Wednesday.

Around 2:45 p.m., Noreen Domanico, 54, was sitting in the driver’s seat of a car on Westhampton-Riverhead Road that had been reported to police as being on fire, officials said. When police arrived, the car wasn’t on fire but reportedly had a blown radiator. Ms. Domanico allegedly smelled like alcohol and had slurred speech, no balance and bloodshot, glassy eyes. She performed poorly on a pre-screening breath test and was arrested for DWI and taken to headquarters to be processed, officials said. Her dog, which was in the car, was taken to Animal Control and the car was towed, police said.

Ms. Domanico was charged with aggravated DWI and driving while intoxicated, both misdemeanors, police said.
