Florida man abandons his 5 year old son during police chase because he couldnt keep up


A Dania Beach man, 27 year old Jerry McCabe who ran away from
police during an attempted traffic stop fled from his car and took
off running with his 5-year-old son. According to police he kept
urging his son to run faster but when they got to a barrier, he
ditched his son and jumped over a barbed wire because his
son couldn’t keep up.

According to a Pembroke Pines police arrest report, McCabe was
driving a Dodge Charger without a valid license when an officer tried to stop him but McCabe refused to stop and led the officer on a car chase, weaving in and out of traffic. Eventually, the car’s two driver’s side tires blew out, so McCabe and his son got out and ran away, the report said.

Police said the officer chased after them on foot and ordered them
to stop, but they kept running. During the pursuit, the officer heard McCabe yelling at the boy to keep up. McCabe left the boy and jumped over the barbed-wire fence while the officer stayed behind and stayed with the boy.

While the officer watched the boy, a security guard at a nearby
building who witnessed the chase agreed to watch the boy, so the
officer continued to chase McCabe again.

Police said McCabe later surrendered after he saw that the officer
was still chasing him.

After he was arrested, McCabe told police that he was taking his
son to get a physical for football and was running from the officer
because he didn’t have a valid license and had marijuana in his
car, the report said.

McCabe, was arrested on Tuesday on multiple charges, including
child abuse, child neglect, one count of driving with a suspended
license, resisting arrest without violence, possession of marijuana
and fleeing with disregard of safety to persons or property.
