Aggravated Drunken Driving Accident in East Hampton, NY

A motor vehicle crash resulted in misdemeanor charges of aggravated drunken driving and cocaine possession for 35-year-old Sahm Adrangi, founder and chief investment officer of Kerrisdale Capital Management. The accident occurred at about 3:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 13, when Adrangi was driving a 2015 BMW Convertible on Montauk Highway in the vicinity of Bluff Road in Amagansett, New York. He reportedly crashed into a Ford SUV, which was going in the opposite direction.
The driver of the SUV was injured in the drunk driving accident, but police did not elaborate on the nature or severity of her injuries.
According to police, each motorist stated that the other had driven over the double yellow line prior to the collision. Police eventually issued a speeding ticket to Adrangi, who allegedly refused to take a breath alcohol test at police headquarters. As a result of this refusal, his driver’s license was suspended. Justice Steven Telusky subsequently set bail at $1,000, which Adrangi posted in order to secure his release from police custody.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) and Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in New York
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) is considered a crime in New York. Any amount of alcohol consumption can have an effect on your judgment, coordination, and ability to operate a motor vehicle. The extent of impairment is typically dependent on five factors:

  • The quantity of alcohol you consume
  • The quantity of food you consume prior to, or during, your consumption of alcohol
  • How long you drink alcohol
  • Your body weight
  • Your gender

In New York State, a violation involving alcohol or drugs can result in the loss of driving privileges, fines, and time spent in prison. A charge of aggravated drunken driving is punishable by a fine of between $1,000 and $2,000, a maximum jail term of one year, and revocation of your driver’s license for a minimum of one year.
