MATTITUCK, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island have arrested a 20-year-old man who they say slapped a woman’s buttocks during a festival in Mattituck.

Southold Town Police say Thomas Talbot, of Mattituck, was arrested Friday night at the Mattituck Lions Club Strawberry Festival.

They say Talbot appeared to be intoxicated when he grabbed and slapped an 18-year-old woman on the buttocks.

Police say that when officers approached Talbot, he began to cause a disturbance at the crowded festival and then fought with officers as they tried to arrest him.

Talbot was arrested on forcible touching, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and harassment charges.

A message left at Talbot’s home Saturday wasn’t immediately returned.
