A Blue Point man was charged with driving while intoxicated early Sunday morning after he crashed his car into the garage of a house in Bayport and fled the scene, Suffolk County police said.

There were no injuries, police said.

Police said Kevin Sheehan Jr., 20, was driving a 2013 Ford Fusion shortly after midnight on Bayport Avenue when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a garage attached to a house near Davis Street.

Sheehan drove off in the car, but Fifth Precinct officers took him into custody about a half-hour later on Second Avenue in Bayport, police said.

Police said Sheehan was charged with driving while intoxicated, leaving the scene of a motor-vehicle crash, and fifth-degree criminal possession of marijuana.

Sheehan was held on $4,000 bond or $2,000 cash at his arraignment Sunday at First District Court in Central Islip.
