Southampton supervisor's DWI case expedited
A judge agreed to fast-track Southampton Town Supervisor Linda Kabot's DWI case Wednesday in light of her re-election bid.
Kabot's trial will begin Oct. 29. She is running for re-election Nov. 3.Normally, a DWI case takes three to six months to work it's way through court.
Kabot was arrested early Labor Day morning by Westhampton Beach police. They say she veered out of a lane and smelled of alcohol. She refused to have a Breathalyzer test done.
The town supervisor spoke of her DWI charge on camera for the first time as she exited court.
"I disagree with the police officers' statement and conduct," said Kabot. "I was not driving while intoxicated nor was I driving erratically."
