• Brendan Corbley, 26, of Cutchogue was charged with aggravated driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation, both felonies, and failing to maintain a lane of traffic on Feb. 3 at 4:57 p.m., after police stopped him on traffic violations on Route 25 in Mattituck, police said. Corbley was arrested and his vehicle was seized due to a prior DWI conviction, police said.


• Christopher M. Forsberg, 40, of Montauk, was arrested and charged with drunken driving, a felony due to a prior conviction, and resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, in Montauk on Feb. 1.

Police reportedly saw Forsberg's Subaru pull out of a parking lot and make a left onto West Lake Drive at a high rate of speed, and then drive off and onto the roadway, just after 11 p.m. Police pulled the vehicle over near Duryea Avenue and Forsberg appeared intoxicated, they said. Field sobriety tests that were administered had to be stopped for his safety, according to a police report.

However, when Forsberg was placed under arrest, he refused to get into the patrol car, dropping to the ground, kicking and rolling around, police said. The officer tried to move him, but he "went limp several times," according to his arrest report. Two additional officers were called to the scene and he was taken into custody. At headquarters, Forsberg complained of chest pain and displayed "psychotic behavior," the report said. He was transported to Southampton Hospital for evaluation, and released.

In the morning, Justice Catherine A. Cahill arraigned him and released him on $350 bail.
