BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) - The New York Police Department has suspended a detective who was arrested for drunken driving after crashing her car on Long Island while with her young son.

Newsday reports (https://nwsdy.li/2vAsgB5 ) 40-year-old Raquel Warburton, of West Babylon, was suspended without pay. Warburton pleaded not guilty in court Saturday to multiple offenses including aggravated driving while intoxicated with a passenger 15-years-old or younger.
