A North Fork man and woman are facing drunk driving charges after they were arrested in two separate incidents this weekend, Southold Town police said.

In the first incident, police stopped Gilda Martinez, 48, of Peconic on Route 25 in Cutchogue about 9:40 p.m. Friday after they saw her failing to stay in her lane while driving east, according to a police report. Police said Ms. Martinez failed a roadside sobriety test and was arrested at the scene.

She was charged with driving while intoxicated and held for a morning arraignment, police said.

The next night, an Orient man was caught driving drunk with a revoked license, police said.

He was charged with felony driving while intoxicated and held for arraignment, police said.
