A 28-year-old Hampton Bays man was arrested by officers responding to a 911 call Thursday night reporting an erratic motorist on Montauk Highway in Hampton Bays, police said.

Southampton Town police said responding officers stopped the white Toyota pickup truck being driven eastbound by Selven Maldonado-Buezo — and determined he was intoxicated. Officers said Maldonado-Buezo also had a prior DWI conviction within the past 10 years and did not have a license.

The stop occurred at 11:28 p.m., police said.

Police said Maldonado-Buezo was charged with felony driving while intoxicated because of the prior conviction, and unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and failure to signal, both traffic infractions.

Maldonado-Buezo was held overnight for arraignment Friday in Southampton Town Justice Court.
