Cops arrested a Glen Cove man in Jericho last night for drunk driving while his 2-year-old sat unsecured in the backseat.
According to authorities, Juan Martinez Landaverde, 34, was involved in a car accident on Broadway near Manhattan Drive at 5:50 p.m. Upon arrival, cops found Landaverde was drunk—they also found his 2-year-old daughter in the backseat, in an unrestrained child car seat.
Landaverde was arrested at the scene, and his daughter was released to the custody of her mother at the Second Precinct, cops said. Landaverde is charged with operating a motor vehicle in excess of .08 or more alcohol in blood, driving while intoxicated, aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger less than 16 years old (Leandra’s Law), aggravated driving while intoxicated, endangering the welfare of a child and unrestrained back seat passenger under age 4.
