Court Date Set for Sayville Man in Alleged Golf Course DWI Incident

Chris Meier is charged with two DWIs and four other counts.

A Sayville man who allegedly drove his car onto a Long Island golf course drunk and reportedly caused over $10,000 in damages and recklessly endangered the life of a man sitting on a golf car is scheduled to be back in Nassau First District Court on October 1.

Chris Meier was arrested on July 10 at the Deepdale Golf Club in Manhasset for allegedly driving drunk and striking at least two unoccupied golf carts while driving a 1995 Ford Taurus and causing extensive property damage before getting stuck in a sand trap, according to police. He reportedly tried to run from the scene but was detained by club staff, said police.

The 49-year-old is facing DWI and aggravated DWI charges, as well as several criminal mischief and reckless endangement charges.

He was released from Nassau County jail in late July after posting a $12,000 bond.
