Police: Driver on PCP had kids in car

Tarrence La'Damion Alexander

A 27-year-old man was under the influence of PCP when he crashed his cousin's vehicle while three children sat in the backseat, police said.

Tarrence La'Damion Alexander of Bryan was charged with possession of PCP Monday after officers responded to a car accident outside Lampo's Grocery in the 4300 block of Texas Avenue.

First responders arrived at the scene at about 7:40 p.m., where they found Alexander sitting in the driver's seat of a Chevy Tahoe "acting strangely" and refusing to respond to questions, police said.

Alexander's cousin, the owner of the vehicle and mother of the children, told investigators he was supposed to be watching her kids at her house.

As medics led Alexander from the vehicle, he turned back toward the car and lunged for the center console, according to the police report.

Inside officers found 1.5 grams of PCP in a bottle of spray hand sanitizer, police said.

Possession of 1 to 4 grams of PCP is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison.

Alexander was being held at the Brazos County Jail Tuesday in lieu of $8,000 bail.

Stuck on stupid and locked up. Fool could have hurt those poor innocent kids. Parents be more careful about who you trust your children with! Dope heads are NOT suitable babysitters!
