Police Logs: Drunken Driver Detained on Deportation Order

An East Hampton resident is being held at the Suffolk County jail after being arrested on felony DWI charges.

The following information was supplied by the East Hampton Village Police Department and the East Hampton Town Police Department. A criminal charge is only an accusation and does not indicate guilt.

• Jose F. Jarama, 38, of East Hampton, is being held at the Suffolk County jail following an arrest on felony DWI charges in East Hampton Village on Nov. 13 at about 4:30 p.m.

According to village police, an officer was on routine patrol on the shoulder of Woods Lane, when someone approached police about a grey Oldsmobile van with Illinois plates with a large dent in the back was operating in an erratic manner in front of her.

Police located the van on Main Street and followed it to Mill Hill Lane, where it did not signal a turn. The van than drove on the wrong side of the road until police activated their emergency lights. The driver than pulled to the right shoulder. Jarama was behind the wheel and told police he had a suspended license. Police said he appeared intoxicated and when he exited the vehicle, they saw several empty and half-empty cans of Budweiser beer on the floor.

He refused to perform field sobriety tests, police said. Multiple revocations and suspensions showed up on his Department of Motor Vehicle report. There was also an outstanding bench warrant for failure to appear in East Hampton Town Justice Court on Jan. 20, 2011. The vehicle was impounded and seized due to a prior conviction of DWI on June 29, 2006.

Jarama was charged with felony DWI, misdemeanor aggravated DWI, first-, second-, and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicles, which range from a felony to misdemeanors, and several violations of Vehicle & Traffic law.

According to Suffolk County jail records, Jarama is being held on $15,300 bail and is due back in town justice court on Dec. 6. The US Department of Homeland Security also issued a detainer for him due to a deportation warrant.

• Simone K. Anderson-Chandler, 27, of Bridgehampton, was arrested on Saturday on a charge of driving while intoxicated, a misdemeanor. She was pulled over after police saw her swerving in a 2008 Honda on Montauk Highway, near Hampton Place, in East Hampton at about 2:25 a.m., town police said. She pulled over and parked, but then put the car in drive and slowly drove up the shoulder of the road. Police activated the sirens again and told her to put the car in parked, which she did, they said. Police said she performed poorly on field sobriety tests and was arrested at about 2:45 a.m. Later that morning, Justice Lisa R. Rana released her on her own recognizance.

• A 23-year-old Montauk man was arrested on several charges on Nov. 15, a few weeks after a domestic dispute took place, town police said. Soon after coming to the victim's door to have a conversation on Oct. 26, the man allegedly grabbed the victim by her neck and pushed her back, causing her to fall on the floor. He then picked up their child and kicked the victim, as she lay on the floor. He then walked toward the door and the victim got up, grabbed the defendant's shirt and he dropped the baby on the coach and left the apartment, said police, who were called shortly afterwards. The defendant was not picked up until Nov. 15. Justice Catherine A. Cahill arraigned the defendant on criminal obstruction of breathing, acting in a manner injurious to a child, both misdemeanors, and second-degree harassment, a violation. He was released on $250 bail. An order of protection was issued and Child Protective Services were notified.

East Hampton Patch's policy is not to name those involved in domestic incidents unless they are charged with serious felonies.

What's with the "Pending Approval" for so many comments? What triggers that, particularly in the comment here at 12:37 PM?

ralebird, I don't know. Your comment did post immediately, right? I don't see anything pending. Email me if you need me to look into it further.

"ralebird" is of course correct regarding the purposes for, and limitations on, the imposition of bail as a condition for release from police custody. Now, all we need is for the Courts, if the defendant is convicted, to impose sentences in all DWI cases that are the most meaningful deterrents within the ambit of the law..
