LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a man wanted to get his kids to daycare so badly, he was willing to run from police to do it.

According to an arrest report, the incident took place on Tuesday, March 18, just after 10 a.m. on Greenbelt Hwy. Police say they used radar equipment to determine that 28-year-old Montrall A. Mayfield was driving his 2013 Nissan Maxima 80 mph in a 55 mph zone.

When an officer tried to stop him, he allegedly sped up past 100 mph in an attempt to "get away." Police say he was cutting in and out of traffic.

When officers finally stopped him, they discovered that he had a 3-month-old, a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old in the car with him, according to an arrest report.

Police say he admitted to speeding up, "in an attempt to get away, so he could get his children to daycare on time."

He was arrested and charged with speeding 26 mph or more over the speed limit, reckless driving, fleeing or evading police and wanton endangerment, according to police.
