A West Virginia man was charged with DUI and domestic battery after authorities say he fought with his wife and then left his home in a van.
James Belcher, 41, was seen driving a blue mini-van at high-speeds with his young daughter inside when deputies passed him on the way to a domestic call at his home, according to court documents.
Belcher took his two-year-old daughter with him after he ditched the van a couple of miles away from his home and fled into the woods.
Belcher surrendered to deputies with the Kanawha County Sheriff's Department a short time later.
The two-year-old was given back to Amanda Belcher, the mother. The mother was treated on scene for abrasions.
