One of the well-known New York chefs has been busted in a drunken-driving crash in the Hamptons. It has been unveiled out by the sources that one of the most celebrated chefs, Maurizio Marfoglia, blew a 0.24 on a Breathalyzer test as almost three times the legal limit just as after falling asleep behind the wheel of a 2017 Ford and plowing into a light pole. He was although not injured.
The chef was arrested on an early Monday by East Hampton Town police and was charged with aggravated DWI. Marfoglia is the head chef and partner of Dopo La Spiaggia, an upscale Italian restaurant with locations Sag Harbor and East Hampton. He was also once affiliated with the Coney Island franchise of the burger chain Wahlburgers. Police have investigated and found that Marfoglia was headed north on Route 114 near Breeze Drive when he dozed off, swerved off the road, struck a mailbox, then crashed into a telephone pole. Marfoglia was standing outside the vehicle when authorities arrived and admitted to having two glasses of wine.
The restaurateur had his license suspended and was released without bail at his arraignment. Marfoglia’s lawyer, Edward Burke Jr., said he applied for — and was granted — a hardship license on behalf of his client. The license allows Marfoglia to drive to and from work, Burke said.
