ALBANY, N.Y. - An Albany man has been arrested in connection with a domestic dispute and vehicle pursuit involving an infant.
On Friday around 9:05 p.m., officers responded to the 200 block of South Allen Street for a report of a man with a gun who fled the area with his infant child in the car after a domestic dispute.
Upon arrival, the mother of the child told officers that the father had left the home in his vehicle with the couple's infant in the car. She also told police the man had a handgun.
Police officers were able to quickly locate the vehicle on Bertha Street. However, as officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver, 55-year-old Gregory Parker, refused to stop and a vehicle pursuit ensued.
Police say Parker had made several comments that created concern for the well-being of both him and the child.
The pursuit ended without incident in the 200 block of South Allen Street. Parker was promptly taken into custody.
Parker was arrested and charged with Menacing, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Reckless Endangerment, Unlawful Fleeing, and Resisting arrest. He was arraigned on Saturday morning in Albany City Court.
