Meryl Streep’s nephew arrested, charged with second-degree assault, strangulation in road rage incident

Meryl Streep’s nephew Charles Harrison Streep was arrested at his home in East Hampton Village, N.Y., on Thursday morning after a road rage assault.

Charles, 31, allegedly assaulted and strangled an 18-year-old in a parking lot behind Chase Bank on Main Street, East Hampton, on Monday morning police told the Independent East End.

Lt. Gregory Brown said police received several 911 calls at about 11:30 a.m. in regards to the altercation.

The 18-year-old victim was offered medical attention at the scene, but refused, Brown said.

Charles’s victim went home, but shortly after requested medical assistance.

He was first transported to Stony Brook Southampton Hospital and later airlifted to Stony Brook University Hospital because of “serious head trauma that required emergency surgery.”
