RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

During a hearing on Sunday in Richland County, bond was set for the suspect who led a pursuit with Richland County deputies that ended with him flipping a car with a baby inside the vehicle. 

22-year-old Bryan Martin's bond was set at over $100,000. He is being charged with child endangerment, marijuana possession, driving under suspension, reckless driving, failure to stop for blue lights and sirens, and resisting arrest. Martin's bond is set the highest for the child endangerment charge which is $100,000. He also faces multiple lesser charges which amount to an extra $3,000.

The judge at Martin's bond hearing said Martin is not allowed to make contact with his daughter who is almost 2-years-old. The girl's mother says the child is OK but will remain in the hospital through Sunday night. 

In an exclusive interview with WIS, the child's mother says Martin is a good father. 

Dispatch confirmed that deputies began pursuit of a male driver in the 1000 block of Furwood Circle and it ended at Main and Elmore following a 911 call made about "suspicious people" at a large party with possibly 200 people. 

Richland County Sheriff's Department Lt. Curtis Wilson says the suspect flipped and crashed the vehicle with a baby inside. Deputies on scene said after the crash, Martin got out of the car with the baby and tried to fight the responding deputy. 

The suspect exceeded speeds of up to 90 miles per hour during the pursuit. 

The baby has been transported to the hospital and is expected to be okay and is now with family. No one else was injured. 

The suspect struck a car before flipping over. The driver of that car is okay as well. 

Richland County Sheriff's deputies are being followed by crews with the A&E show "Live PD."

According to a criminal background check, Martin has previous arrests for discharging firearms into a dwelling, driving under suspension, and unlawful carrying of a weapon.
