Suffolk County Police today arrested a woman for driving while intoxicated, after she drove her vehicle into a pond in Ronkonkoma Thursday night.
Melissa McMullen drove a 2009 Mercury Mountaineer SUV into a pond at Colony Park Apartments, located at 500 Peconic St., at approximately 7:50 p.m. Fifth Precinct and Emergency Service Section officers responded. The vehicle was taking on water when Emergency Service officers Danny Colondona, Carmine Pellegrino and Chris Oddo arrived. The officers broke a window, attached a chain so the vehicle wouldn’t go further into the water and pulled the vehicle out of the pond with McMullen in it. McMullen was transported to Stony Brook University for evaluation.
McMullen, 39, of Islandia, was charged with Driving While Intoxicated and will be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on a later date.
