CENTRAL ISLIP - Ten alleged wrong-way drunken drivers have been caught on Long Island this month, the most recent of whom made an appearance at the Central Islip Courthouse today.

Alicia Tysz, of Middle Island, was arraigned today. Police say she drove drunk the wrong way on Route 25 this morning and was impaired by alcohol and prescription drugs.

Suffolk County Executive Steve Levy (R-Suffolk) says in the wake of the recent incidents, there are going to be more sobriety checkpoints and the county is stationing officers at entrance and exit ramps where drivers could potentially get on the wrong way.
