Cops: Running a stop sign leads to Greenport DWI arrest

A driver who came to a town police patrolman’s attention by driving through a stop sign early Saturday morning was later charged with drunk driving and several vehicle violations, police said.

Angel Albaladejo, 31, of Southold was driving a 1999 Dodge Durango north of Main Street in Greenport and didn’t stop when he turned left onto the North Road at about 1:30 a.m., police said. The officer who pulled him over detected the smell of an alcoholic beverage and administered several roadside sobriety tests, which Mr. Albaladejo failed, according to a report.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated, driving without a license, failing to stop at a stop sign and failing to maintain his lane of travel. Mr. Albaladejo was held overnight pending arraignment in Southold Justice Court.
