A kiss at a Wyandanch party led to a fight, bottle throwing in the streets at 4:30 a.m. Thursday, a hit-and-run with four victims -- and an arrest, Suffolk police said.

At a house party on South 32nd Street, a man kissed Netanya Lewis, 18, of Melville, but the man's ex-girlfriend saw it and got angry, said First Precinct Det. Michael Fitzpatrick, who is on the case.

Lewis and the ex-girlfriend got into a fist fight, he said, and Lewis tried to leave the house.

"She tries to get into her car, and now the party's excited and spills out onto the street," Fitzpatrick said.

Bottles were thrown and people were shouting, he said.

"She goes to take off and hits four people," the detective said. The victims had minor injuries and were treated and released at Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip.

Lewis surrendered to police Thursday afternoon and was charged with two misdemeanors, four counts of third-degree assault and leaving the scene of an accident with physical injuries. She was released with a field appearance ticket and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 22, police said.
