Last week, we reported the number of arrests was down, while the crowd was up for the Montauk Friends of Erin St. Patrick's Day parade.
East Hampton Town police made nine parade-related arrests made, according to Lt. Chris Hatch. However, only the name of two of the people who were charged with misdemeanors were immediately available.
Here are the rest of the arrestees:
• Martha B. Casaverde, 45, of Mastic Beach, was arrested on a misdemeanor false personation charge. Police were patrolling the post-parade crowds, when they saw the defendant fall to the ground on Montauk Highway at about 5:30 p.m. The woman, who was intoxicated according to police, was unable to stand on her own, even with the help of a man who was with her. Police asked her name, and she allegedly lied about it. Taken to police headquarters, she was uncooperative and refused to comply with directions, leading to three officers having to subdue her, according to a report. She was held overnight for arraignment, she was released on her own recognizance.
• David Gaviola, 21, of Springs, was arrested and charged with driving while ability impaired by alcohol, a violation, and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor, after the parade in Montauk on St. Patrick's Day. Gaviola was pulled over in a 2000 Ford Mustang on Edgemere Street at about 1:25 p.m. He passed one of the field sobriety tests, but failed the other. Police also found his license had been suspended twice. He was released on his own recognizance and will be arraigned on April 10.
• Anthony D. Sosinski, 45, of Montauk, was arrested on a drunken driving charge on Spinner Lane, near Springs Fireplace Road, in East Hampton, on St. Patrick's Day at about 8:40 p.m. According to police, Sosinki was seen speeding and swerving in a 1998 Toyota pick-up truck as he traveled west on Town Lane in Amagansett. Held overnight on arraignment on a misdemeanor DWI charge, he was released on his own recognizance the next day.
