An allegedly drunk driver was asleep behind the wheel blocking traffic overnight on the Long Island Expressway in Suffolk County.

Richmond Hill resident Fazil Rahaman, 39, was arrested by Suffolk County Sheriff deputies shortly before 3 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 10, when he was found sleeping in the driver’s seat with his vehicle blocking the right turning lane.

According to investigators, Rahaman proceeded to fail multiple Standardized Field Sobriety Tests once he was woken up, and a breathalyzer determined that his blood alcohol content was .12 percent, over the legal limit.

Rahaman was arrested and transported to the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office in Riverhead, where he was charged with a misdemeanor count of driving while intoxicated. No return court date has been announced.
