A man was arrested Sunday night after leaving his child inside his car and running away from police.
An officer spotted a speeding car near Rainier Avenue South and South Byron Street at 9 p.m. Sunday night.
The 28-year-old driver pulled into a nearby bank parking lot, got out of the car and ran away. While other officers chased after the man on foot, one officer noticed a young child in the front passenger seat of the car.
The child said his father had been drinking and pointed to a can of beer on the floor of the car. The child was handed over to a family member.
The man was taken into custody after he was found hiding behind a dumpster at a gas station. Police found he had two felony warrants and later booked him into jail for reckless endangerment, traffic crimes and the two warrants.
