It's usually a good idea to keep both hands on the wheel while you're driving.

A Potsdam man didn't follow that advice when a witness allegedly saw him punching a female passenger while driving on Route 56 in the town of Potsdam.

St. Lawrence County sheriff deputies say 26 year old Jordan Beard was charged with  harassment for hitting the passenger and for endangering the welfare of a child because a child under 17 years old was in the back seat.

He was arraigned on the charges and released. An order of protection was issued for the passenger.
