A Greenport man was arrested after he was observed drunk and sitting in the driver’s seat of his parked vehicle while the engine was running early Saturday morning, Southold Town police said.

Juan Arroyo, 51, was charged with DWI in the incident, which occurred on South Street, shortly before 5 a.m. Saturday.

He was arraigned in Southold Town Justice Court Saturday.

Mr. Arroyo was the subject of a police press release in January when, while attempting to light a cigarette, he crashed his car into a utility pole in Greenport and knocked out power throughout the village. No charges were filed in that incident.
