A man who made unsafe lane changes while driving intoxicated on the Long Island Expressway had two young children in the car, police said.

Bryan Ramirez, 27, of New York City, was operating a 2002 Gray Acura traveling westbound on the Long Island Expressway near Exit 37 in Roslyn around 4 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 20, Nassau County Police said.
