The following information was supplied by the East Hampton Town Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt. The following reports were released for the week of Aug. 1919.

• A 24-year-old from the Bronx was arrested on a misdemeanor criminal mischief charge after police said he punched out the front window at the Stephen Talkhouse on Aug. 14 at about 2 a.m. The damage totaled about $200, police said. The man had cuts on his right bicep, wrist, knuckles and near his right eye, police said. The Amagansett Fire Department ambulance transported him to Southampton Hospital, and he was taken into custody after he was discharged. He was released on his own recognizance.

• Police said a Needham, M.A., woman resisted arrest after an altercation at the Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett on Aug. 17. An officer on foot patrol was approached by the manager about the incident and the man was being escorted out by the staff at about 12:15 a.m. She tried to go back into the Talkhouse, so police approached her, but she was uncooperative, they said. While trying to interview her, she was "highly uncooperative, yelling and cursing on the sidewalk." Police told her she was being placed under arrest, but she pulled her arms away and tried to push herself free, police said in their report. She was eventually handcuffed and transported to headquarters. When police tried to cuff her to the table while they logged the arrest, "she made multiple attempts to push her way free and continued to flail her arms." She also defecated on herself, police said. Charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and second-degree harassment, a violation, she was released on her own recognizance after arraignment. 

• A 16-year-old from Amagansett was arrested on drug charges during a traffic stop in Montauk on Aug. 16. Police said they pulled over a 2006 Toyota sedan heading west, doing 58 mph in a 40 mph zone on Montauk Highway, near Upland Road, in Montauk at about 2 a.m. According to police, there was a strong odor of marijuana coming from inside the car. The defendant, who was sitting in the back seat, was questioned. He reportedly gave police a ciagarette box from his front pocket and a folded orange piece of paper with a white powdery substance was found inside. It later tested positive for cocaine, police said. The green leafy substances in the car tested positive for marijuana, they said. He was charged with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor, and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation. He was released on a $100 appearance ticket. His name was withheld because he is eligible for youthful offender status. 

• A 25-year-old man from Montauk was arrested and charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, following a domestic dispute on Ditch Plains Road in Montauk at about 8 p.m. He reportedly broke a phone. An order of protection is being sought.
