A Bay Shore man is facing two felony DWI charges, including a Leandra's Law DWI, well as traffic violations, after erratic driving on the Southern State Parkway Friday night caught the attention of a New York State Trooper.

Julio Ramos, 41, was driving his gray Chevrolet pick-up truck unsafely about 8:50 p.m., according to a trooper driving in the same traffic lanes during patrol near Route 110. Ramos ultimately passed the trooper’s car and drove across hazardous markings near the center median, according to police. A  traffic stop was then initiated and while interviewing Ramos the trooper detected the odor of an alcoholic beverage, states a police report.

Police say Ramos, who was traveling with two children in his vehicle, failed sobriety tests and produced a positive breath sample of .21 percent BAC. 

Ramos was arrested and is charged with Aggravated DWI (Class E Felony, Leandra's Law), Felony DWI (at least one DWI conviction in the last 10 years) and traffic violations. The children were released to a family member.
