A 27-year-old Ohio man is facing charges after he allegedly led police on a chase with his 5-year-old son in the car.

Police say Jemar J. Simmons, of Akron, even threw a handgun out the window during the chase.

Officers tried to pull Simmons over last week after he was seen making an improper turn.

Instead, he led officers on a brief chase. 

During the chase, he threw a gun out the window. Police say they found marijuana in his possession. 

Simmons was charged with having weapons while under disability, carrying concealed weapon, improper handling of firearm in a motor vehicle, failure to comply with order of police officer, possession of marijuana and endangering children.
