Hedge fund wife Lisa Falcone was arrested for driving while impaired and without a license after Hamptons crash.
The socialite wife of hedge fund billionaire Phil Falcone — as her husband ranted at cops, according to a police report and a witness.
Lisa Falcone, socialite hedge fund wife, had just left the Hampton Classic Horse Show when she made a sharp turn in her Mercedes SUV in Bridgehampton and rear ended another Mercedes before smashing into a parked Verizon van.
She pleaded with the owner of the Mercedes she hit, Bob Cohen, and Verizon worker Fred Ledermann not to call police, “saying her husband would pay for everything,” the witness said. But Ledermann did call.

Phil Falcone soon arrived and shouted at cops to wait for a tow truck.
A Southampton Town officer got so fed up with the billionaire’s bellowing that he ordered him to the side of the road and called for backup, the witness added.
Because she smelled of alcohol and was staggering, the officer asked Lisa Falcone to take a Breathalyzer, according to a police report.
From the side of the road, her husband yelled, “Don’t take it!’’
When the cop threatened to arrest her because of the refusal, Phil changed his advice to “Take it! Take it!’’ according to the witness.
Lisa eventually did take a breath test and registered under the legal alcohol limit, but she admitted to taking prescription pills for an ankle injury and pleaded not guilty to driving while ability impaired.
