GREENPORT, N.Y. — A Greenport man was arrested early yesterday after resisting arrest and fleeing Southold Town police, officials said.

Ronald Smith, 41, had been pulled over for a defective headlight, and when Southold police asked him to take field sobriety tests, refused, police said. Smith then fought with the officer who was attempting to remove him from the car, they said.
