Deputies with the Wake County Sheriff's Office were attempting to serve domestic violence papers to 21-year-old Quincy Tyrone Boyce at about 8 p.m. when he fled the scene with a 3-month-old in the backseat.

Boyce was charged with fleeing to elude arrest and remains in jail with no bond. The incident is under investigation.

    Why isn't he charged with kidnapping and child abuse?? Why do the police give chase at high speeds knowing there is an infant in the car? I really think that policy needs to be looked at.

    Glad they caught up to this maniac. I passed him on the opposite side of the road while he was doing about 100 down the hill by Crabtree with the sheriffs office in hot pursuit.
