Chauffeur Arrested For Drunk Driving, Endangering Child

Posted on September 21, 2016

Authorities say the owner of a limousine service was drunk behind the wheel while taking a family from a New York City airport to a Long Island home.

Suffolk County police say 64-year-old Michael Winn picked up five passengers at JFK airport the night of Sept. 20. As he slowed down at the scene of a crash on the Sunrise Highway in Sayville, police told him to pull over because he allegedly had been driving erratically.

Instead, Winn kept driving before pulling over a half mile away.

The passengers included a 22-month-old boy and the child's parents and grandparents.
