A College Station man faces multiple charges after authorities said he evaded police while he had a small child in his vehicle.

According to College Station police, around 2:10 a.m. Saturday, an officer attempted to stop a vehicle on Deacon Drive West on a traffic violation. The vehicle did not stop when the officer activated his lights and instead led police to a home on General Parkway, a report notes.

Police said the driver, identified as Darryl Thompson, 31, then got out of his car while carrying a small child and entered a home. A report notes that Thompson held the door closed as the officer attempted to open it. Police eventually were able to enter the home and arrest Thompson without incident.

He is charged with endangering a child and evading arrest with a previous conviction, both state jail felonies punishable by up to two years in a state jail; and fleeing a police officer, a Class B misdemeanor.

Thompson remains in the Brazos County Jail on $12,000 bond.
