A 25-year-old man has been charged with driving drunk under Leandra's Law after his infant daughter was found in the car when he was stopped on Long Island.

The stop happened on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 2:10 a.m. in Freeport.

Freeport Police officers say they observed a 2007 Honda Civic operating westbound on Washburn Avenue, make a right on red onto North Main Street.
