    The boys, ages 3 and 4, were released to the custody of their mother, Suffolk County police said. 

    Miguel Alvarado-Gonzales, 29, of Center Moriches, was arrested and charged with Leandra's Law, which is aggravated driving while intoxicated with a child passenger. He was also charged with two counts of child endangerment. 

    Police say he was in the drive-thru lane at the McDonald's on North Ocean Avenue in Farmingville when he fell asleep at the wheel of his Jeep Cherokee. A restaurant employee called the police.
