“Every parent has an obligation to protect their children, even from themselves,” Ogg said. “Car’s aren’t toys and playing chicken with your kids isn’t a game.”
The Houston Chronicle reported that Stagg was arrested Thursday and charged with third-degree felony criminally negligent homicide charge. He bail is set at $1,500, but prosecutors requested a higher amount of $50,000.
"You should be playing Peek-A-Boo with a three-year-old instead of forcing him to try and dodge a 5,600-pound deadly weapon," Harris County District Attorney's Office Vehicular Crimes Chief Sean Teare said in a statement.
If convicted, Stagg could face up to 10 years in prison.
