Cops: Mattituck man charged with felony DWI in Laurel

A Mattituck man was arrested on a felony DWI charge Saturday after he was caught speeding in Laurel, according to a Southold Town police press release.

Justin Wadelton, 29, was pulled over by police around 9 p.m. on Peconic Bay Boulevard and found to be intoxicated, officials said.

During the investigation, police found Mr. Wadelton had been previously convicted of DWI, officials said.

In 2010, he was charged with DWI following an accident on Route 25 in Cutchogue after his car struck a utility pole and landed on its side, according to a report. He later pleaded guilty to DWI and had his license revoked for six months and fined $1,000, a previous report states.

On Saturday, Mr. Wadelton was charged with DWI and speeding and held for an arraignment, police said.
