On Friday Southampton Town Police arrested and charged Tyshawn O. Riddick, 22, of Riverhead, with two counts of reckless endangerment in the first degree, plus aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child, driving while ability impaired by drugs, and assault in the second degree, all felonies. He was additionally charged with a slew of misdemeanors.

At around 9:22 AM, after observing several traffic infractions on Ludlam Avenue in Riverside police attempted to stop a 1999 Dodge Durango truck. Riddick allegedly attempted to evade the officer, driving recklessly and speeding.

Police were able to follow Riddick to the area of Brookhaven Avenue in Flanders where they say he stopped his car, put it in reverse and rammed the front end of the police car while the officer was attempting to exit it. Police say Riddick then fled from the vehicle on foot, leading them on a chase through the residential area until he was apprehended and placed under arrest near Oak Avenue and Arthur Avenue.

Police found a three month old infant, later identified as Riddick's son, in the rear passenger seat of the Durango. The infant was sent to Peconic Bay Medical Center for observation and later released without any injuries, according to Southampton Town Police.

The officer who was assaulted was also brought to the medical center for multiple injuries and is in stable condition, police say.

Riddick was held overnight and brought to Southampton Justice Court where he was remanded to county jail in lieu of $30,000 bail.

At about 2:41 AM on Sunday, Nicole Sobol, 32, of Southampton, was arrested by Southampton Town Police for assault in the second degree, a felony, as well as criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree and criminal mischief in the fourth degree, both misdemeanors. Sobol was a passenger in a motor vehicle accident at North Sea Road and Majors Path. According to police, Sobol exited the vehicle operated by her ex-boyfriend after the accident, then began to punch and kick him, striking him in the head and face with a high heel shoe causing lacerations and bruising. Police also say Sobol keyed the victim's car. She was arrested at the scene, transported to police headquarters for processing and held for morning arraignment. The victim was transported to Southampton Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
