A man from central Florida had children in his car as he led deputies on a short chase.

Deputies with the Marion County Sheriff's Office went to talk to Brandon Buckholz about a domestic battery investigation on Sunday night.

Once deputies showed up, investigators said Buckholz hit a deputy with his car before driving off with another adult and two small children in the car.

Buckholz bailed out of his car before deputies arrested him. He's facing two counts of felony child neglect, one count of aggravated battery on law enforcement, one count of fleeing and a host of other charges.
