East Hampton DWI Arrests for the Week of June 20

Mischa Rene Hugli, 25, who told the court during his arraignment Sunday that he spends much of his time at sea professionally, while also having a Sag Harbor address and a South African passport, was arrested by East Hampton Town Police on misdemeanor DWI charges early Sunday morning. Hugli was driving a late-model Chevrolet Malibu west on Montauk Highway across Napeague Stretch when he was pulled over by police, reportedly for speeding along with a couple of lane violations. Police said Hugli was doing 70 mph in a 55-mph zone, while swerving across lane lines. He appeared intoxicated to the officer who made the stop, police said, and failed roadside sobriety tests leading to the arrest. At Town Police headquarters in Wainscott, a breath test produced to reading of .21 , well over the .08 level that defines intoxication in the State of New York, as well as over the .18 mark that automatically raises the misdemeanor charge to the aggravated DWI level.

Felipe Margo Garcia, 34 of Bridgehampton was arrested by East Hampton Town Police early Friday morning on a charge of misdemeanor DWI. Police said Garcia was driving a 2008 Toyota Yaris on Main Street while tailgating the vehicle in front of him, as well as swerving across lane lines, leading to a traffic stop. The arresting officer reported that Garcia appeared intoxicated and had him perform roadside sobriety test, which the officer said Garcia failed. After his arrest, he was taken to police headquarters on Cedar Street, where a breath test produced a rating of .18 percent alcohol in the blood, raising the misdemeanor charge he is facing to the more serious aggravated DWI level.

Daniel J. Reichman, 21, of White Plains was arrested by East Hampton Town Police on a misdemeanor DWI charge early morning last Thursday. Police said that Reichman was driving a 2020 Chevrolet SUV south on North Main Street when he failed to signal a turn onto Collins Avenue and then ran the stop sign at Collins Avenue and Accabonac Road leading to a traffic stop. He appeared intoxicated to the arresting officer who reported that Reichman failed sobriety tests. Reichman was taken to headquarters under arrest where he refused to take a breath test, police said. Because of that refusal, Reichman’s license was suspended for the next year during his arraignment at East Hampton Town Justice court later that morning, pending a hearing at the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles. If the suspension is upheld during Reichman’s refusal hearing at the DMV, it will remain in place even if he is found not guilty of the DWI charge over the next 12 months.

East Hampton Town Police arrested Sarah Barry, 22, of Montauk on a misdemeanor charge of DWI the night of June 11. Police said Barry was driving a 2019 Toyota Camry east on Old Montauk Highway while tailgating the vehicle in front of her. The report indicates she was less than a full car length off the vehicle she was following. She also failed to signal a left turn into the parking lot of a resort on Old Montauk Highway, police said. She appeared intoxicated to the arresting officer who asked her to perform roadside sobriety tests, which she reportedly failed. At police headquarters, she took a breath test, with police reporting a reading of .18, high enough to trigger a more serious charge, though still a misdemeanor, of aggravated DWI.
