Brentwood DWI
Jose Umanzor, a 34-year-old father from Brentwood, was arrested after he allegedly drove drunk with his young daughter in the car.

Suffolk County police Wednesday arrested a Brentwood man for allegedly driving drunk with his young daughter in the car, police said.

Cops arrested 34-year-old Jose Umanzor after he attempted to make a U-turn in a parking lot on Crooked Hill Road in Brentwood and then backed into an unoccupied parked vehicle, police said.

Umanzor and his 4-year-old daughter were not injured in the crash.

Police charged the father under Leandra’s Law for aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child 15 years old or younger. He was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

The girl was released to a family member, police said.

Umanzor will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Central Islip.
