SOUTHAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) — Celebrity chef Todd English has been arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated in New York.

Police in Southampton say the 54-year-old English was arrested at around 3:30 a.m. Sunday on a county road on Long Island.

Authorities say he posted $1,500 bail at Southampton Town Justice Court.

An email to English's representative wasn't immediately returned.
