He had "extremely glassy" bloodshot eyes and a "strong odor" of alcohol but denied drinking, state police said.

A 1-month-old baby was in the back seat, police said. 

Vazquez was arraigned July 25 before District Judge Barry L. Bloss Jr. and is free on  $10,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 17 before District Judge Scott Laird.
