Town Police Logs: Man Arrested For Allegedly Interfering With an EMS Call

Amagansett man was charged with obstruction of governmental administration.

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

• Frank E. Thompson, who is 58, was arrested in his Amagansett home after he continually got in the way of police who were trying to assist an unconscious woman on April 3.

According to police, they responded to an EMS call for a woman who sustained head injuries from a fall at an Abrahams Landing Road house. When they arrived at about 1:40 p.m., they found Thompson "highly intoxicated and agitated was blocking the main doorway of the residence," police said. Officers instructed him to move out of the way so that they could treat the injured female, who was bleeding from her forehead and was unresponsive. He moved, allowing the officers to enter the house, "however he remained highly agitated cursing at both officers," an arrest report said.

While one officer treated the woman, another officer attempted to keep the defendant from interfering. After several attempts, police warned him he would be placed under arrest. He took "an aggressive stance" and tried to force his way around one officer. Both officers were able to subdue him and placed him in handcuffs. He was charged with obstruction of governmental administration in the second-degree, a misdemeanor.

While in custody at headquarters, he requested medical assistance, though the exact reason was not clear. He was taken to Southampton Hospital, and was issued an appearance ticket for April 11.

• Carlos A. Rac-Subuyuj, 34, of East Hampton, was arrested on a charge of aggravated driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor, for allegedly driving with a blood alcohol level above .18 on Sunday at about 3 a.m. Police said they saw the defendant's vehicle, heading north, make a left turn from Springy Banks Road onto Three Mile Harbor Road in the southbound lane. He sped off when police pulled up behind him and he made a wide left turn onto Muir Blvd., police said, adding that he nearly struck numerous trees before coming to a stop in the roadway on Old Fireplace Road. He failed all field sobriety tests, police said. Following arraignment, he was released on $750 bail.

• Juan Gaspar, 24, of Montauk, was arrested on drunken driving charges after an accident on March 16. Police were called to West Lake Drive, near Glenmore Avenue, after a 2000 GMC dump truck collided with a utility pole at about 10 p.m. Gaspar was reportedly standing a short distance away and identified himself as the driver. Police said he appeared intoxicated and failed all field sobriety tests.

Police spoke to the owner of the vehicle and were told Gaspar did not have permission to drive it. In addition to a misdemeanor DWI charge, he was also charged with unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, also a misdemeanor.

Due to his injuries, he was transported to Southampton Hospital, where he was treated and released. He was held overnight for arraignment, and released on $500 bail.

So one can steal someone's vehicle, drive drunk, and get released on $500 bail? East Hampton has become a haven for illegal alien criminals. I guess because the Town cares more about keeping that cheap labor around for crooked businesses.
