Eric C. Guerin was allegedly driving at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday and failed to stop for Fort Collins police and then eluded deputies who also attempted to stop him. Deputies eventually tracked the vehicle to the 400 block of Crescent Drive in Loveland.

The child was dropped, but was not injured, during a struggle in which Guerin tried to take a deputy’s firearm, according to a news release. Eric M. Guerin, the suspect’s father, tried to intervene. He also was taken into custody.

Eric C. Guerin was booked into the Larimer County Jail on suspicion of second-degree assault, vehicular eluding and disarming a peace officer, all felonies. He also faces multiple misdemeanor and traffic offense charges.

Eric M. Guerin was booked on suspicion of three misdemeanor charges, driving while license under restraint, resisting arrest and obstructing a peace officer.

Both men remained in custody on Monday, police said.
