A Sayville man facing several criminal charges for an alleged drunk driving episode at a Manhasset golf course last year was arrested this week on a fugitive warrant issued by the Clinton Police Department in New Jersey.
Chris Meier was picked up at his home on Claire Lane Sayville on March 14. He is currently free on a $12,000 bond for the alleged DWI incident, and his most recent court date, March 18, was adjourned. His next court appearance in Nassau First District Court is May 2.
Meier allegedly drove a 1995 Ford Taurus onto the Deepdale Golf Club in Nassau golf course on July 10, 2012 and reportedly caused over $10,000 in damages and recklessly endangered the life of a man sitting on a golf car, according to police. He was arrested after his vehicle became trapped in a sand pit and was detained by club staff. He was released from Nassau County jail in late July after posting the bond.
The 50-year-old is facing three D felony counts for criminal mischief in the second degree and three misdemeanors, one for driving with a BAC of .08 of 1 percent, aggravated DWI and reckless endangerment.
