A Southold man with a previous conviction for driving while intoxicated was arrested Sunday for drunk driving, Southold Town police said.

An investigation reportedly revealed Mr. Castellon was intoxicated. He was charged with felony DWI due to a 2013 DWI conviction, along with unlicensed operation and a traffic violation, police said. His vehicle was also seized.
