Hampton man who fled police with child in backseat accused of endangering the child
HAMPTON - A Hampton man who drove away from a police officer who knew his license had been suspended faces multiple charges, including endangering the welfare of a child in the backseat.
Police say Tony Rosas, 36, also was charged with disobeying an officer, reckless operation and driving after suspension.
Police say an officer saw Rosas driving on Route 101 around 7 p.m. on March 25 and pulled him over near the Route 1 interchange. Rosas stopped briefly then sped off at a high rate of speed and performed a U-turn, police said. He was eventually stopped in front of 8 Brown Ave. and found to have a 7-year-old girl in the backseat.
Rosas was released on $2,500 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in Seabrook District Court on May 3.
