Police arrested a Southold man early last Tuesday morning after he was caught driving while intoxicated, according to a police report.

He was arrested and transported to headquarters after officers determined he was intoxicated.

• A Mattituck woman was transported to the hospital after an altercation at The Rhumbline in Greenport early Sunday morning, according to a police report.

Officers responded just after 3 a.m. to find that the victim had been hit in the head with a beer bottle in a fight, the report stated. She was transported to Eastern Long Island Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

• A $3,500 air conditioner was taken from a Peconic residence on Friday, according to a police report.
