Cops: Mom Drove Drunk on LIE with Son, 3, in SUV

A New York City woman was arrested Monday night for allegedly driving drunk with her 3-year-old son in the vehicle, Suffolk County police said.

Joanna Pagan was pulled over by a highway patrol officer near Exit 49 on the Long Island Expressway at 10:32 p.m. for failing to maintain her lane, police said.

The officer later determined that 32-year-old mom was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and was arrested, police said.

She was charged under Leandra’s Law for driving while intoxicated with a child passenger 15 years old or younger, endangering the welfare of a child and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle.

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

Pagan is scheduled to be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Central Islip.
