WOODS CROSS — Police are pursuing charges against a mother who made her son run alongside a moving car she was driving.
The mother was upset her 9-year-old child missed the bus to school and refused to walk, said Thomas Smart, master officer for Woods Cross police.
"She didn't want to give him a ride to school, so she felt it appropriate to grab him by the tongue of the belt ... and preceded to drive slowly up the street," he said.
Police responded to a call Thursday that a woman was "dragging" a child down the street on 1500 South. Witnesses said the mother was holding on to the child outside the driver's side window, Smart said.
Smart said the woman admitted her actions to police, who informed her of the danger she posed her child.
He said the case alleging endangerment and neglect of a child has been submitted to prosecutors.
