A Port Chester man didn't flee like most others after a drunk-driving accident this morning on Willett Avenue.
Instead, he climbed out of his car, lit a cigar, and greeted a responding officer warmly when police arrived at 12:05 a.m. The officer asked Mattiello what happened, but the 48-year-old Port Chester man was mumbling, as well as unsteady on his feet.
According to the other driver, Mattiello had crossed the double yellow line as both drivers were heading east on Willett Avenue. The other driver didn't realize Mattiello was trying to pass, and the cars collided when the driver began to make a left turn, Lt. James Ladeairous said.
Diogene Mattiello, 48, of 54 Leonard St., was charged with misdemeanor driving while intoxicated. Neither driver was injured in the collision.
