Child in car of alleged Syd drink driver

A man allegedly drink driving "erratically" with a child in the car has been charged in Sydney's west.

Police were called after a car was spotted moving erratically on Cowpasture Road at Abbotsbury just before 11am on Saturday.

The driver, a 31-year-old man from Camden, returned a positive result from a roadside breath test and then an alleged high range reading of 0.198.

A five-year-old boy and 28-year-old woman were passengers in the car, police say.

The man was charged with high-range PCA, his driver's licence was suspended and he was ordered to face Fairfield Local Court on December 10.

A child risk notification was also sent to the Department of Family and Community Services.
