A Riverhead man was arrested for DWI in Greenport Friday night, after a 14-year-old girl told Southold Police that he had attempted to pick her up.
The girl said the man who approached her just after 8 p.m. was driving a red Honda Civic. Police later found Ronald Eldridge, 43, driving a car matching that description on Adams Street.
Police said Mr. Eldridge’s breath smelled of alcohol and that they later determined he was intoxicated. He was taken to police headquarters and held for a morning arraignment.
