NEW YORK(CBSNewYork/AP) –Police say two parents who drove drunk with their small children in the car in separate incidents on Long Island are under arrest.
Nassau County Police arrested a woman who was allegedly driving drunk with her toddler in tow.
Corina Rusu, 36, was with her 2-year-old on Friday, when she was arrested outside of a Stop And Shop in Oceanside, according to investigators.
No injuries were reported in the incident.
Police in Suffolk County say 54-year-old Queens father, David Bellamy, was drunken driving in Brentwood with his 4- and 5-year-old daughters as passengers around 1 a.m. Saturday.
Both parents have been arrested on charges including an aggravated DWI offense that involves driving drunk with a passenger under 16. It’s called Leandra’s Law, after an 11-year-old girl killed when a woman drunkenly drove a station wagon full of children into a Manhattan highway wreck.
