GREEN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - An Indiana father is scheduled to face a judge Monday on charges he drove recklessly and nearly struck several pedestrians in a local police department's parking lot with his 5-month-old daughter in the vehicle, along with a loaded gun and marijuana.

Tarell Davis is held in lieu of $155,000 bond at the Hamilton County Justice Center.

The convicted felon faces several charges: trafficking in drugs, aggravated menacing, endangering children, improper handling of firearms in a motor vehicle, weapons while under disability, possession of drugs, illegal use or possession of marijuana drug paraphernalia and obstructing official business.

Davis recklessly drove a 2016 Ford F-150 XL pickup truck through the parking lot of the Green Township Police Department off Harrison Avenue and nearly struck several pedestrians from the "Touch a Truck" event Saturday, police wrote in court records.

He "obstructed and impeded" a police officer from doing her job when her refused to stop and obey her command. Once he complied, the officer took him into custody, records show.

That's when officers found a loaded .40-caliber Springfield Armory firearm in a diaper bag in the rear seat of his truck. The bag was next to his 5-month-old daughter, according to an affidavit.

Police also found $3,032 in cash in his driver's side map pocket and 932.15 grams of marijuana , a scale and several plastic baggies, police wrote.
