I know it's all around but I still can't believe what has happened to LI. I am so tired of these articles. Come on Patch, why don't you tell us if this person is legal, if he has a license and insurance? It's not like we will be shocked!

Hey Boo, Look up and to the right on this page to see other folks who were arrested in Sag Harbor for DWI (See More on Patch). You didn't ask if any of them are legal, licensed and insured. Racist much?

How horrible if anyone dares tto point out the obvious. Bleeding heart liberal much?
