NEW YORK (CBS 2) -- Police on Long Island arrested a man they said was driving drunk with a one-year-old child in the car. Juan Cruz, 21, of Westbury, faced felony charges Monday.

Cruz was arrested shortly after midnight Sunday while he was driving while intoxicated on Old Country Road with a one-year-old passenger who wasn't restrained in a safety seat, police said.

Cruz was charged under Leandra's Law, which makes it an automatic felony to drive drunk with someone under the age of 15.
