A 33-year-old man has been arrested for drunken driving with three children in his vehicle in his hometown of Sag Harbor on Wednesday evening, Southampton Town Police said.
Officers stopped a vehicle driven by Miguel Saldivar for speeding northbound on Sag Harbor Turnpike when the suspect was found to be under the influence of alcohol with his 10-year-old son, 10-year-old niece and 13-year-old nephew riding in the passengers seats shortly after 8 p.m., police said.
Saldivar was charged with speeding, endangering the welfare of a child and driving while intoxicated with child passengers less than 16 years old, a felony under Leandra’s Law.
The children were released to their family members and Child Protective Services was notified.
Saldivar will be arraigned Thursday at Southampton Town Justice Court.
