Driver arrested after low-speed pursuit with child in vehicle

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Pima County Sheriff deputies spiked the tires and boxed in a Nissan on Shannon near Ina this afternoon after a low-speed pursuit. 

The sheriff department says a woman called 911 around 12:45 p.m. to report her 4-year-old child was with the father who she said had drugs in the vehicle. 

The father was supposed to drop the child off at daycare, but did not. Sheriff's deputies spotted the car later in the afternoon and pursued the vehicle at speeds of 20 miles per hour before spiking the tires twice and boxing it in. 

A department spokesman says the driver rammed two sheriff vehicles before he stopped. 

The child has been reunited with the mother. 

Gary Campbell, 35, is in the Pima County Adult Detention Center on charges of endangerment, aggravated DUI with a child, aggravated DUI with a suspended license, two counts aggravated assault on law enforcement, criminal damage, unlawful flight, DUI child abuse, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a dangerous drug.

Shannon, south of Ina, remains closed during the investigation.
