A Far Rockaway man was arrested early Sunday morning after Nassau County police said he was allegedly drunk behind the wheel with two young children in the car.

Christian Bisono, 40, was charged under Leandra’s Law with two counts of aggravated driving while intoxicated, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child and driving while intoxicated.

Police say Bisono was stopped at 3:55 a.m. on Sunday when an officer allegedly observed him driving “in an erratic manner” along North Central Avenue in Valley Stream. When he was pulled over, “Bisono was found to be in an intoxicated condition,” a police news release said. Authorities said his blood-alcohol-content was over the legal threshold over .08 percent.

At the time, a 10-year-old boy and 8-year-old girl were in the car. A police officer later took them to a friend’s house, cops said. Police did not disclose Bisono’s relationship to the children.

Bisono, police said, was scheduled to be arraigned Sunday morning at First District Court in Hempstead.
