A Montgomery County man barricaded himself in a home after police say he kidnapped his 14-month-old child, and then crashed his car with the child inside.

It took more than seven hours of negotiations, but finally just before 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, Robin Maple gave up and came out without a fight.

"I just can't understand what he was thinking," said Melissa Patrick the boys mother.

"And then to think he wrecked his car, with my son inside and just left him there," Patrick told 27 NEWSFIRST.

She says her son, Billy Wyatt Maple suffered serious injuries as a result of the wreck which left the boy trapped inside the vehicle.

"He suffered a hip fracture and neck injury which left my son in a neck brace," said Patrick.

Police say Maple took his son from the babysitters Wednesday morning without permission. Whep police attempted to pull Maple over that's when they say he led them on a high speed chase.

Robin Maple has been taken to a psychiatric facility in Lagrange where he is facing multiple charges, including kidnapping.

Police say Robin Maple also kidnapped his son back in December sparking an amber alert.
