A 23-year-old Buffalo man was charged by Orchard Park police late Monday afternoon with a driving drunk with children in his vehicle, the so-called Leandra’s Law DWI offense.

Robert R. Kelsey, of Carlyle Avenue, was driving drunk with two girls, ages 10 and 13, in his car about 5:45 p.m., when he drove off Route 219, police said.

Kelsey’s blood-alcohol reading was 0.17 percent, more than twice the legal limit, police reported. He also was charged with endangering the welfare of a child. He was released after a family member paid a $250 bail and ordered to return to Orchard Park Town Court on Jan. 29.
