A Suffolk man has been arrested on charges of abuse and neglect of children after police say he was driving drunk with a 2-year-old in the car.



A Suffolk police officer responded to the McDonald’s in the 600 block of North Main Street just after 9 p.m. May 7 on a report of a suspicious person falling asleep in the drive-through, according to city spokeswoman Diana Klink.

Dominique Lamont Pray, 22, was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol, drinking while operating a motor vehicle and refusing a blood or breath test, Klink said. A 2-year-old boy was found in the back seat of the vehicle, and arrest warrants were later issued for abuse and neglect of children with reckless disregard, Klink said.
