A Napa man went to jail Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of child endangerment, reckless driving and driving with a suspended license.
Police went to a home on the 2600 block of First Street in Napa in response to a report of a disturbance. As the officers arrived at the home, they saw Aaron Patrick Gilmet, 26, of Napa, driving away from the home at a high rate of speed in a cream-colored Cadillac according to police.
"The driver of the vehicle drove erratically by passing numerous vehicles over double yellow lines and driving at speeds in excess of 80 miles per hour," a Napa Police Department press release stated.
The officers located the Cadillac, unoccupied, in the 2700 block of Partrick Road. Witnesses told police that Gilmet and his 8-year-old son had exited the vehicle and walked up a nearby hill.
Officers searched the area and found Gilmet, and took him into custody.
