Southampton Town police said Rodrigo Xot Tocay, 25, of East Hampton, was arrested after an investigation revealed he was intoxicated -- and it was determined his vehicle was not equipped with an interlock device, as required due to a previous conviction within the past 10 years.

Police said his license also had been suspended because of a previous DWI conviction.
