Police arrest a Salina man who led officers on a short car chase with an infant in the vehicle.

Drug Task Force Commander Bill Cox tells KSAL News that police got a tip about suspected drug activity in the 300 block of N. 10th.

Officers in unmarked cars watched as 34-year-old Robert Davis parked in a driveway Thursday afternoon, he then punched his car into reverse as police walked up and identified themselves.

Police say he slammed his 2007 Cadillac into a parked car and then led officers on a short chase with his windows down.

Drug Task Force agents were able to recover marijuana that was packaged for sale along with other drug paraphernalia he allegedly threw out of the car as he drove.

Davis is facing multiple drug charges along with child endangerment.

Officers found a 3-month old baby boy buckled up in a child seat. Lt. Cox said officers did not know the infant was in the vehicle during the chase.

The child was placed into protective custody.
