Police Logs: 2 Springs Men Arrested on DWI Charges Close To Home

The following information was supplied by the East Hampton Town Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.

• Harry A. Pena-Reyes, 27, of Springs, was held on $15,000 cash or $30,000 bond after he was picked up on a felony aggravated driving while intoxicated charge, due to a prior conviction and a high blood alcohol level, in Springs on Feb. 28.

Police said they initially spotted Pena-Reyes' vehicle at the intersection of Three Mile Harbor-Hog Creek Road and Folkstone Drive going 55 mph in a 35 mph zone at about 2 a.m. According to police, the vehicle "partially left the roadway and crossed into the opposite lane of travel," before making a left turn onto Richardson Avenue.

Police turned on their lights and sirens to initiate a traffic stop, but Pena-Reyes did not stop, instead driving in the opposite lane of travel. He made a left onto Mary Street — where he lives — while continuing to ignore the police sirens. He drove to the end of Mary Street and stopped in a driveway. Police walked over to the vehicle, and they said he appeared drunk.

He failed all field sobriety tests and was taken to headquarters. Police said he was previously convicted of DWI in East Hampton Town Justice Court on Oct. 14, 2010. His vehicle was impounded due to Suffolk County Seizure Law. His blood alcohol level was also above .18, police said.

East Hampton Town Justice Lisa R. Rana arraigned him. Unable to post bail, he was turned over to Suffolk County Sheriff's office.

• Julio Pedro Mateo, 33, of Springs, was arrested on a misdemeanor aggravated DWI charge on Sunday. Police said his vehicle was seen swerving on Three Mile Harbor Road, near Fort Pond Blvd. in Springs at about 6:45 p.m. As he made a right turn onto Bruce Lane — also where he lives — he drove in the oncoming traffic lane of traffic. During a traffic stop, he appeared intoxicated, according to police. His arraignment information was not immediately available.
