CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man has been charged with boating while intoxicated by the same officer who charged him with the same offense four years ago.

Suffolk County police stopped Joseph Leon around 2:20 a.m. Sunday for operating his 38-foot cabin cruiser without navigational lights in the Great South Bay.

Police say the 59-year-old Sayville resident was intoxicated.

Leon was arrested by Marine Patrol Officers John Mullins III and John Sheehan. Officials say Mullins arrested Leon for boating while intoxicated after he crashed his boat in the Patchogue River in June 2011.

Police say there was one passenger on board the boat Sunday. She wasn’t charged.

It’s unclear if Leon has an attorney who could comment on the charge.
