Durelle Rucker, 23, of North College Hill, is held at the Hamilton County jail on one count each of child endangering and domestic violence.

He was booked into the jail Thursday after North College Hill said they responded to a report of a domestic disturbance at a residence in the 2100 block of Lincoln Avenue, court records show.

A woman told police he burst into her home, started throwing items and yelling at her and then attacked her, according to her sworn statement.

When police arrived, he jumped into his car and drove off – with his infant seated on his lap.

Police eventually got him to pull over and took him into custody. The baby was not injured.
