Dad accused of leaving son while fleeing police

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A Memphis man is accused of leaving his 3-year-old son behind while running from police on foot after a traffic accident. A 46-year-old man was charged with driving under the influence and child endangerment after a minor traffic accident Sunday night.

A police affidavit says the man tried to run from the scene but was chased down and held for authorities by two witnesses to the accident.

The man was accused of leaving his son, who was not properly restrained, sitting on the front seat of his car. Police said the boy's mother came and picked him up.

No serious injuries were reported.
