Man Leads Police on Chase With Son on Lap

Posted: Updated:

A dangerous police chase this weekend with a man who had his young son inside the car.

Sean Bylsma was in a Montcalm County court today and is facing several charges.

Police say Sean Bylsma, from Comstock Park, not only let his 4-year-old son drive, but he also lead police on a short chase with the child on his lap.

To add to that, he's accused of fighting a deputy before he was arrested in Montcalm County.

Police say both Bylsma and the deputy in the fight received minor injuries.

Bylsma is charged with fleeing from police, assaulting an officer, operating with a suspended license, and having open alcohol in the car.

Child endangerment charges are pending.
