HOUSTON—A Houston father ditched his 5-month-old and tried to make a run for it because he did not want to go to jail for failing to pay child support, according to Houston police.
Kenneth Lee Bonds, 31, was charged with felony child abandonment and evading arrest.
HPD officers stopped Bonds for a routine traffic violation on December 18. Bonds pulled the vehicle over at first, but took off running when he was being questioned by officers, leaving his 5-month-old son strapped in a car seat.
Officers called for backup and Bonds was captured and arrested.
Police found out he had a warrant out for his arrest in Kentucky for being delinquent on child support.
