Police say an argument between Roger Allen, 30, and a 27-year old woman didn’t even make it out of the Public Safety Building parking lot.
Police say at one point, Allen pushed the woman away and removed two children ages 2 and 5 from her car into his, but his car was without child seats.
He took off and police found him later at Walmart.
Allen was released until court on January 25.
