A Westhampton Beach man was arrested Monday after police said he supplied alcohol at his outdoor party to an underage guest who later crashed his car into the second floor of a house.

Hunter Wootten, 20, was charged with first-degree unlawfully dealing with a child and was scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 28 at Southampton Court, Suffolk police said.

Wootten hosted an outdoor party where police said Adam Clark, 20, drank last week, police said.

Clark of East Moriches was driving at high speed Saturday when he passed a stop sign, drove over a berm in the road and catapulted into second floor of an East Moriches house, police said. Clark was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment and criminal mischief.

He had minor injuries, police said, and the resident who was at home during the crash was not hurt.
