Manhasset man charged with DUI

A Manhasset man pulled over for driving erratically late Wednesday faces drug charges and impaired driving charges, Nassau County police said.

Kenny Ho, 47, of 183 Crabapple Rd., was driving a 2005 Lexus "in an erratic manner" on Northern Boulevard in Manhasset at about 11:10 p.m., according to a Third Precinct officer.

Police said in a news release they stopped Ho's car and determined he was operating under the influence of drugs.

A search of his car produced various pills, including several hundred believed to be hydrocodone, escitalopram, an anti-anxiety drug, and carisoprodol, a muscle relaxant, police said.

Ho was arrested and his car was impounded.

He is charged with three counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance, two counts of driving while his ability was impaired, failure to stay in a single lane and impeding traffic.

He was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
