SHERIFF NETS TWO ARRESTS ON THE 1st WEEKEND OF CAMPAIGN SAFE AND SOBER
 


The first weekend of Campaign Safe and Sober resulted in two D.W.I. arrests by the Suffolk County Sheriff's Office. Campaign Safe and Sober is a nationwide movement, which runs from August 18th through Labor Day, in an effort to remove drunk drivers from our roadways.

On August 19, 2006 at County Road 39 and North Sea Road in the Town of Southampton, Floyd Clarke, age 29, of East Orange, New Jersey, was spotted by Deputy Sheriff Mark Scarano at approximately 1:30 a.m., driving through a red light, and driving on the sidewalk. When stopped, the defendant had an open alcohol beverage, a large plastic bag of green leafy substance identified as marijuana, and several plastic bags of white powder identified as cocaine. Mr. Clarke was charged with Driving While Ability Impaired by Drugs, Possession of Open Alcohol in Vehicle, two charges of Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance 3rd Degree, Failure to Stop for Steady Red Light, and Driving on the Sidewalk.

On August 20, 2006, Daniel Rosenberg, age 21, of Southampton, New York, was observed by Deputy Sheriff Sergeant John Andrejack at approximately 3:30 a.m. driving his vehicle westbound on Montauk Highway in Watermill, with dazzling fog lights, blinding oncoming traffic. When stopped, Mr. Rosenberg's speech was slurred, eyes were bloodshot and glassy, and his movements were slow and uncoordinated. Mr. Rosenberg failed the standard field sobriety tests and the intoxilyzer test administered at the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau. Mr. Rosenberg was charged with Driving While Ability Impaired and Driving with Dazzling Headlights.

Sheriff DeMarco wants to remind everyone, "If you drink and drive in Suffolk County, the only bars you will be hanging around are the bars of a jail cell."
