A Queens man was arrested early Saturday morning when a police officer pulled him over for speeding and allegedly found him drunk behind the wheel with his two young daughters in the car, Suffolk County police said.

David Bellamy, 54, of Corona, was stopped around 1 a.m. along the westbound Long Island Expressway in Brentwood when a highway patrol officer noticed his 1995 Chevrolet “traveling at a high rate of speed,” police said.

When Bellamy was pulled over, cops found him “intoxicated” with his four-year-old and five-year-old daughters in the car. He was arrested and taken to the Fourth Precinct in Hauppauge, where he was booked on a felony drunken driving charge under Leandra’s Law, two counts endangering the welfare of a child and an additional charge of driving while intoxicated.

Court records show Bellamy was arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Central Islip and ordered held on $30,000 cash bail or $60,000 bond. He was being held late Saturday at the Suffolk County Jail and is due back in court next Thursday.
