Blotter: Southold man arrested again on DWI charges

A Southold man who was previously convicted of drunken driving was arrested for DWI again last Thursday after he was stopped for erratic driving on Main Road in Mattituck, according to Southold Town police.

Robert Bruey, 51, was pulled over near BP Gas Station around 11 p.m. for a traffic violation and found to be intoxicated, police said. He was arrested at the scene and his vehicle was impounded due to his previous DWI conviction, according to a police report.

Police didn’t provide additional information about Mr. Bruey’s previous conviction.
