A judge in Yuma Superior Court accepted a plea agreement signed by Raul Tejeda Tuesday afternoon.
The 23-year-old pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and endangerment per domestic violence.
The story begins in the early hours of October 9th of last year, when Tejeda began arguing with the mother of his 11-month-old daughter at a house in Yuma.
After the argument escalated, Tejeda rammed the mother’s vehicle and took the child in his truck before headed south towards Mexico.
Police chased the 23-year-old, but he refused to stop, even trying to ram patrol vehicles off the road.
Tejeda eventually made it to the San Luis port of entry, running over spike strips before abandoning his vehicle and leaving his daughter at his father's house.
Hour’s later, family members convinced Tejeda to return to Arizona and turn himself in.
Tejeda could spend up to 2 and a half years in prison.
