Yet another grim hallmark of Manhattan nightlife has made its way out to Long Island for the summer: Andrew Reister, 40, a Suffolk County Corrections officer moonlighting as a bouncer at Southampton’s Southampton Publick House, died Saturday morning from injuries he sustained during a fight with Anthony Oddone, a 25-year-old caddy at the exclusive Bridge golf course in Bridgehampton. The incident—Southampton’s first murder in 20 years—stemmed from a dispute on Wednesday night in which Reister reportedly asked a drunk Oddone to stop dancing on the barroom’s tables. Oddone wrested the officer to the ground before placing him in a headlock and then attempting to flee the scene in a cab. Oddone will likely be charged with second degree murder.
