Cops: Drunk Man Who Wouldn't Get Off Bus Gets Ride to Jail Instead

East Hampton Village police arrest 53-year-old Calverton man on charge of resisting arrest.

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

• A 53-year-old Calverton man is being held on $2,000 bail at the Suffolk County jail after an arrest in East Hampton Village on Oct. 24. Police received a report of a man on board a Suffolk County bus, in front of Herrick Park on Newtown Lane, who was causing a disturbance at about 1:50 p.m. Police said they found a highly intoxicated man who refused to get off the bus. He was "belligerent and combative," police said, adding he grabbed onto the railings of the bus and refused to put his hands behind his back when police tried to arrest him. He was eventually taken into custody, at about 2:15 p.m., and held overnight for arraignment. He was charged with resisting arrest, a misdemeanor, and disorderly conduct, a violation. Unable to make bail, he was held at the county jail.


• Mark S. Seidenfeld, 59, of Bridgehampton, was arrested on a misdemeanor DWI charge in East Hampton Village on Oct. 27. Police said they saw him make a wide turn from Main Street into the eastbound lane on Woods Lane, while heading west, at about 1:45 a.m. Driving a 2013 Dodge Ram pickup truck, Seidenfeld then sped up to 45 mph in a 30 mph zone and crossed the center double yellow line and the white shoulder line several times, according to police. He was stopped on Montauk Highway, near Jericho Road. He was charged with driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, and two traffic infractions.

• Manuel Chavez Garcia, 37, of East Hampton, was also arrested on a drunken driving charge in the village on Oct. 27. Village police said Garcia was speeding in a 2000 GMC van, going 52 mph in a 30 mph zone on Main Street at about 3 a.m. He was pulled over near David's Lane, and they said he appeared to be intoxicated. Charged with misdemeanor DWI, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a violation, and speeding, another traffic infraction, he was arraigned in East Hampton Town Justice Court.

Everyday its more and more DWI's on here. When will this end? One of these two individuals is an attorney, sworn to uphold the law.....Maybe if they take away his law license, he will learn a lesson
