A City of Lockport man faces a Leandra's Law charge after he was allegedly driving while intoxicated over the weekend with three kids in the back seat.

42-year-old Walter Thompson of Mill Street was arrested after state police got a call about a man who was drinking while standing outside his vehicle at an elementary school playground.

A trooper stopped Thompson and noticed the three kids, ages 2, 4 and 7, were sitting unrestrained in the back seat.

He originally gave the trooper a fake name and address. Thompson has an appearance in court on Wednesday.
