East Rockaway Woman DWI Wrong Way on Highway, Cops Say

An East Rockaway woman was arrested for allegedly driving drunk the wrong way on the Seaford Oyster Bay Expressway in Bethpage early Friday morning, Nassau County police said.

Highway Patrol officers responding to 911 calls stopped a vehicle driven by Maureen Hamilton southbound in the northbound lanes of Route 135 between exits 8 and 7 at 12:45 a.m., police said.

The 58-year-old suspect was found to be under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol content above than the legal limit of 0.08 percent, police said. Officers stopped her before there were any accidents reported.

Hamilton was charged with driving while intoxicated, reckless endangerment, reckless driving, and driving the wrong way on a one way street.

She will be arraigned Friday at First District Court in Hempstead.
