Motorist Arrested For Driving Drunk On Boardwalk
A New York father is facing several years in prison for driving drunk down the Rockaway Beach Boardwalk. The "New York Daily News" is reporting that Renato Bernal had six kids in his car when he allegedly drove 30 blocks down the Boardwalk early Tuesday morning. The 41-year-old was stopped by police and found to have a blood-alcohol-content of point-one-two-two. He reportedly told police, quote, "I was not driving anywhere near the Boardwalk," adding, quote, "I didn't have anything to drink." New York's Leandra's Law states that it's a felony to drive while intoxicated with children in the vehicle. Bernal is now facing up to seven years in prison if convicted.
