Woman hit cop car in Freeport, charged with DWI, police say

A West Babylon woman was arrested and charged with drunken driving early Sunday after her car collided with a marked police car in Freeport, authorities said.

Nassau County police said the crash happened shortly after 2:30 a.m. No injuries were reported.

Police said a Nassau County Highway Patrol officer was monitoring traffic at the intersection of South Main Street and Mill Road and saw a 2012 Honda Accord being driven by Charisse Trapani, 34, traveling north on South Main Street.

Police said Trapani crossed a solid white line, collided with the officer’s marked police car and continued driving north.

The officer pulled Trapani over for a traffic stop, determined that she had been drinking and placed her under arrest, police said.

Four tablets believed to be amphetamine and a white powdery substance believed to be ketamine were found in Trapani’s car, police added.

Trapani is charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless driving, two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, leaving the scene of an accident without reporting and “numerous other vehicle and traffic” violations, police said.

Trapani was scheduled for arraignment Monday at First District Court in Hempstead.
