Suffolk County police have arrested a man they say was driving while ability impaired by drugs with two prior arrests within the last 10 years.

Thomas Connolly, 41, of East Setauket, was arrested May 29 at 9 p.m. in Sound Beach. Police stopped him after he allegedly failed to maintain his lane of travel while driving eastbound on Lower Rocky Point Road.
