Terrance Lyles will be arraigned this morning on child abuse and drug charges.
Eventually, officers learned his license had been revoked and asked him to step out of the vehicle. That's when they noticed Lyles had something in his left hand and asked for it. Instead, Lyles allegedly handed them a plastic bag from his right hand.
Again, they asked for the items in his left hand. Lyles then reportedly attempted to throw several pills shaped like Hello Kitty and Dominoes into his mouth, but missed.
Officers said the pills were consistent with Ecstasy.
But the surprises reportedly didn't end there.
After placing the driver under arrest, detectives asked the 6-year-old if he was okay.
"My daddy put something in my sister's pants," he said.
"In pants, in pants," the 3-year-old added.
Detectives shook the child's pant leg until a large plastic bag fell out containing nearly 150 pills.
The children were released to their mother while their father was charged with child abuse/neglect, driving with a suspended license, drug possession and tampering with evidence.
