A 21-year-old Bryan man was in the Brazos County Jail on Monday after being accused of endangering a child while spinning donuts with his vehicle in a shopping center parking lot.
According to an arrest report, Jalen Davis was spinning his vehicle in circles in a parking lot off Wildflower Drive late Sunday night with about 100 other vehicles.
A Bryan police officer who stopped the vehicle said in the report that a 6-month-old baby was being held in someone’s lap in the back seat.
Davis told the officer the baby wasn’t in a child seat to make room for more passengers in the car, according to the report.
He was charged with endangering a child, which can be prosecuted as a state jail felony punishable by up to two years in a state jail and a fine up to $10,000. He was also charged with reckless driving, a misdemeanor.
His bail was set at $7,000.
