A man with a two-year-old in his vehicle reportedly hit double digits when leading the police on a high-speed chase before he ditched his car and took off on foot with the toddler.

Just after midnight on June 14, a 21-year-old man from Lawrenceville, Georgia, was driving a BMW down Interstate 85 with a toddler passenger. Officers from the Gwinnett Police Department were working at a security checkpoint watching for reckless drivers and people driving under the influence when they spotted the BMW. They reported that the driver was traveling over 100 MPH, and when they tried to perform a traffic stop, he did not pull over.

The driver reportedly increased his speed and eventually turned off his headlights in an alleged attempt to dodge the pursuing police. An aviation unit was sent to assist, and they were able to find the vehicle. The man soon pulled over and reportedly decided to continue his attempt to slip away from the authorities. When he got out of the car, he was seen carrying something as he ran away.
