San Juan County deputies chased Kay along country roads until he pulled into the driveway of a home and surrendered. Deputies arrested Kay and rushed to check on the baby, who turned out to be okay.

This week, Kay took a plea deal, accepting convictions for auto theft and DWI. The kidnapping charge was dropped and Kay has been ordered to serve a year of probation.
