A Port Jefferson Station man, who police said was driving drunk with a two-year-old child in his car on the Long Island Expressway, was arrested early Sunday morning.
According to police, 5th Precinct officer William Boyd observed Martir Alonzo Gonzalezcastro, 23, driving erratically on Ocean Avenue in Ronkonkoma. The officer followed Gonzalezcastro as he turned his 1995 Chrysler onto the eastbound service road and merged onto the Long Island Expressway where he pulled Gonzalezcastro over.
Boyd determined that Gonzalezcastro was driving under the influence of alcohol. There was a two-year-old girl and an adult woman in the car with Gonzalezcastro at the time.
Gonzalezcastro was charged with one count of aggravated DWI with a person 15-year-old or younger as a passenger, also known as Leandra's Law. He was also charged with another count of DWI. He was also ticketed for speeding, failure to signal and for driving without a license.
According to court records, Gonzalezcastro was arraigned on Sunday in Central Islip court. Bail was set at $75,000 in cash but was not posted. He is set to appear in court again on Aug. 3.
