Albertson man drove drunk with 2 kids in car: police

An Albertson man was accused of driving drunk with two 10-year-old children in his car Tuesday evening, police said.

Dinesh Kutwal, 45, was drunk while he drove his 2017 Chrysler on Netz Place, the street on which he lives, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nassau County police said.

Kutwal’s 10-year-old son and his female friend, also 10, were in the car at the time, police said.

Kutwal was set to be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead on two counts of aggravated driving while intoxicated, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and one count of driving while intoxicated.

Kutwal is being charged under Leandra’s Law, which makes driving drunk with a child younger than 15 a felony on the first offense.
