Police: L.I. Man Drove Drunk With Child In Car

NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Police on Long Island arrested a man they said was driving drunk with a one-year-old child in the car. Juan Cruz, 21, of Westbury, faced felony charges Monday.

Cruz was arrested shortly after midnight Sunday while he was driving while intoxicated on Old Country Road with a one-year-old passenger who wasn’t restrained in a safety seat, police said.

Cruz was charged under Leandra’s Law, which makes it an automatic felony to drive drunk with someone under the age of 15.

      HMMMMM…drunk with kid in the car and the child wasn’t in restraints, sounds like a dumb ass not Spanish! I get sick of people using their race or color as an excuse!

    3. Nick says:

      Why yes. Now that you mention it. He is SPanish. Why should we bother saving his spawns? Let them all drive drunk with all their spawns in the car. Just like that Schuler ho.

    Goldstein, your an idiot and very ignorant. The word Spics is not to be used to refer to hispanics!!! The issue here is not about being a bad driver. You clearly must not be educated, and are a racist!!!!!! Remember we are all immigrants in this country! Because of people like you the racism will never end and we are in 2011!! GET A LIFE!!

    People do this all the time, and admittedly it’s a bad thing, but why is this news? Was there an accident?

  10. nyc says:

  11. Jose Soto says:

    goldstein you a racist. Remember how many died during World War II including millions of your ancestors because of ignorant, hateful people like you.

    For the child’s sake, I hope this skeet isn’t the kids father. He looks a little satanic.

    1. Mrs. Manicotti says:

      From the eyebrows, I’d wager he’s the mom.

  13. A.Chowdhury says:

    This is ridiculous. How one can drive in drunken condition when there is a strict law and stringent action is being taken against drunk driving specially in the USA. Moreover, the accused person was driving with his one year old son in an unrestrained and unsafe manner, which is no doubt, a punishable offcnce in the eye of law and the accused must not be gone scot- free.
