Real estate mogul Sean Ludwick charged with DWI, leaving fatal Sag Harbor crash.

A Manhattan developer who drunkenly slammed his Porsche into a utility pole in Sag Harbor, killing his passenger, was held on $1 million bond Monday, police said. Sean Ludwick, 42, wore a white jumpsuit to his arraignment in Southampton Town Justice Court in Hampton Bays because his “clothes were taken into evidence in the case,” said his lawyer, Daniel Ollen. Ludwick, who has a criminal history of boozy rampages, was charged with driving while intoxicated and leaving the scene of a fatal accident, cops said, and a vehicular-homicide rap may be pending. Ludwick was arrested after he allegedly broke into his former girlfriend’s Tribeca apartment and drew images “in the shape of penises” on the artwork he had given to her as a gift, according to the New York Post. “It’s all my artwork,” Ludwick told the paper. “I’m an amateur artist, and they’re displayed in my place.

The pole is at the curb on Rolling Hill Court East — right outside the house where Hansen lived with his wife and two sons, ages 11 and 13, according to a source with knowledge of the incident. Instead of contacting authorities, Ludwick allegedly left Hansen lying at the scene and kept going, driving with two flat tires and other damage, the source said.

Ludwick founded the Midtown East-based Black House Development firm in 2007, specializing in luxury condos and hotels, including the ritzy, 56-room Hotel Americano, overlooking the High Line. Ludwick is suing his partners for $15 million over their fractious collaboration on projects, including the 27-apartment Soori High Line condos on West 29th Street.
