Suffolk County Police First Squad detectives have arrested a Massapequa man for driving while intoxicated with his two young children in the vehicle.

The Amityville Police Department received information that a subject would be returning his two children, ages four and five, to the vicinity of Ketcham Avenue and Orchard Street. Amityville police were also told that he might be intoxicated. On March 7, 2012, at approximately 8:25 p.m., an Amityville police officer stopped David Hager, Jr., 26, as he was operating a 2005 Dodge Caravan. Inside the vehicle were his 4-year-old daughter and 5-year-old son. Upon interviewing Hager, police determined that he was intoxicated and placed him under arrest.

Hager was charged with two counts of Aggravated Driving While Intoxicated with a Child Passenger 15 Years Old or Younger (Leandra’s Law) and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a Child.

Hager is scheduled for arraignment at First District Court in Central Islip on March 8.

A criminal charge is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
