Corpus Christi Police Officers were dispatched to 1601 Agnes in reference to a disturbance between a male and a female with a gun. The couple were having a disturbance in a red Mitsubishi car. Officers arrived and observed the red car with the male and female inside. As officers were carefully approaching the male, who was in the drivers seat, he began to drive away. Officers gave numerous verbal and hand signals to stop. The driver refused and drove away at a high rate of speed nearly hitting a officer. The officers got into the marked patrol unit and tried to catch up to the vehicle. Officers located the vehicle which crashed into a house in the 300 block of 16th Street.

Officers arrived and observed the male and female getting out of the car. The male was attempting to walk away. Officers detained the male who immediately complained that his leg was hurting and did not mention anyone else that might have been injured. Officers called for a medic to check the male suspect. At the same time the 25 year old female was yelling “My baby, my baby.” Officers checked the vehicle and observed a 7 year old female screaming with blood coming from her face. The child was stuck between the passenger door frame and the front passenger seat. Officers smelled gas and feared that the vehicle might catch fire. Officers had to break the window and force the seat away from the child in order to remove her from the vehicle. Medics arrived and treated the child for several lacerations to her forehead.

Officers arrested Brendann Williams (11-08-1990) for evading in a motor vehicle and endangering a child. A search incident to arrest revealed that Brendann had what appeared to be crack cocaine in his pants pocket. Brendann had to be medically cleared and was then transported to the City Detention Center. At CDC, Brendann was found pills and marijuana hidden in the area of his crotch. The investigation is still ongoing and there is a possibility that the 25 year old female could be charged in this case.
