The pro-surfer-turned-broker showed up two hours late to a court appearance last week, just barely getting himself out of an arrest warrant. Eckardt, a Montauk native who’s recently been buying up small area cottages, was arrested two weeks ago for allegedly driving while on drugs. That was just days after being fired from Nest Seekers International. He was later overheard saying, “Just made it by 10 minutes. Taking a helicopter is so much faster.” [East Hampton Star] — Cathaleen Chen
