An underage Southold man without a license was allegedly caught driving drunk in Mattituck early Wednesday, Southold Town police said.

Police got an anonymous tip about 2:40 a.m. of an “erratic driver” in a grey Ford SUV headed east on Main Road, according to a police statement. An officer spotted the vehicle driving in and out of its lane and pulled the SUV over, police said.

The driver — 20-year-old Edwin Carbajal — was given field sobriety tests and was arrested, police said.

He was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, and issued traffic violations for failing to keep in his lane and unlicensed driving, police said.

He was held for arraignment in Southold Town Justice Court.
