Man Charged with Child Endangerment

By  | 

A Huntsville man is in jail after allegedly dragging his girlfriend into the backseat of a car while she was driving. Authorities say Drake Doughty was in the backseat with the couple's six-month old child as they returned from a night of partying.

As the two argued, police say Doughty grabbed the victim by the hair and yanked her into the back seat.

The victim's sister was able to reach over and stop the moving vehicle.

But police say the violence didn't stop, as Doughty chased down the girl who was running from the car.

Doughty is charged with endangering a child and assault.
