Her two daughters, ages 10 months and 3 years, were in the car and were released to a family member.
Guzman is charged with two counts of aggravated driving while intoxicated under Leandra's Law, two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, driving while intoxicated, and multiple vehicle traffic law infractions, police said. Arraignment is set for Sunday at First District Court in Hempstead.
