Police say the vehicle then attempted to back up but struck the front end of one of their police units causing minor damage.

Craig and a passenger in the vehicle, Cameron Castillo, were taken into custody at 3:40 a.m.A Child Protective Services spokeswoman says the passenger is the child's father but that Craig is not the child's mother.

Castillo was charged with a parole violation. Both were taken to the Collin County Jail.
