Woman Who Fell After the Parade Gave a Fake Name, Cops Say

East Hampton Town police released the rest of the names of those arrested after the Montauk parade last week.

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.

DWI arrests - no bail? What gives ? Love to know the legal reason for not collecting a bail.

Bail is to ensure return to court. So if someone has strong ties to the community and has a history of showing up on previous charges, they can very well be no bail.

Mastic Shirley / and disrespecting the Police .. false name; grounds for bail ... The other two / Italian / Polish .. locals and accused of DWI Bail should be requested . Time for a new DA . Isnt this a election uear for Judges ? Which Judge was the "get out of jail free" justice ? Some deterrent ...and we wonder why repeat offenders abound ... low ri$k ... go figure ... I thought Suffolk was tough on DWI..

You seem to be quite confused on how the legal system operates and the concept of "innocent until proven guilty".
MARTIN DREW March 27, 2013 at 03:03 AM
Guilty until proven innocent .. where you been hiding ?Lol Then abolish bail $y$tem ? If indeed that is the case? Watch the write ups .. no bail here : lots of bail there .. no bail .. high bail ... so a rapist innocent until proven guilty goes home after arrest with no bail ? Good try .. A murderer goes home - no bail .. nice try .. A drunk is to go home - no bail ... I guess so .. Drinking is legal ... Drink up ... No bail in East Hampton !! wooohooo !!! its partytime ... Goodluck with that ...

If a women can't walk down the street and she was in such bad condition (but they had to .... subdue her???)why wasn't she offered help & taken to the hospital instead of arresting her & held overnight for arraignment until the next day ??I thought the police are suppose help citizens if in need.If they find a dog suffering on the street,the dog gets help (right)?... People go to jail when they may be in need of help???.Something doesn't sound correct here.What's up with this?What is this country coming to??? (An undercover communist country)?

Right, MWD, you are clueless about bail. Bail is permitted only to insure the accused shows up for court appearances or when a defendant presents a significant danger to the community. Fines are levied after trial, not before. You can choose to learn something or argue with facts - it's up tp you.
