Felony DWI Charge for Unlicensed Driver in Water Mill

Jason L. Lambert was driving with an open container of alcohol, according to police.

A 29-year-old Medford man was arrested in Water Mill Sunday morning on charges of felony driving while intoxicated and first-degree aggravated unlicensed driving,

said Jason L. Lambert was pulled over for failing to maintain his lane while driving on Deerfield Road. He was found to be intoxicated, according to police, and was placed under arrest at 8:20 a.m.

Lambert was driving with an open container of alcohol and without a court-ordered interlock device designed to keep a vehicle engine from starting if the driver has alcohol on his breath, police said.

He was taken to police headquarters in Hampton Bays to be processed and held for arraignment.

In addition to felony DWI — an elevated charge that results from having a past DWI conviction — and two counts of aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle in the first degree, also a felony, Lambert also faces misdemeanor charges of second-degree and third degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and circumventing an interlock device. Also, open alcohol in a motor vehicle, unlicensed operation, passing in a no passing zone and moving from lane unsafely, all violations.
