An alleged drunken driver from Long Island found himself under arrest Tuesday night after he pulled over to take a nap in the parking lot of the state police barracks in Brentwood, authorities said in announcing his arrest.

Juan Molina, 39, of Bay Shore, was arrested Dec. 10 after he pulled his car into a visitor’s parking space at the New York State Police barracks in Brentwood.

Police said it was around 11:45 p.m. when they noticed Molina’s blue Hyundai was sitting in the parking lot with the engine running and the headlights on. When a few troopers went outside to see if he needed assistance, they found Molina asleep behind the wheel.

When he woke up, the troopers reportedly smelled alcohol on him. After he failed several sobriety tests, Molina was charged with DWI. He later took a portable breath test and was found to have a .17 percent blood-alcohol content, police said.

Molina was released on an appearance ticket and will face a judge on Dec. 23 for arraignment.
