A New York City couple has been arrested for trying to leave their 6-year-old daughter at a police precinct, authorities say.
The papers allege the girl's father, Gerardo Santiago, who had been waiting in the car, told police Gerhardt was just trying to scare the girl and teach her a lesson. The couple was charged with misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.
The Staten Island district attorney's office said the couple was arraigned on Saturday and released on their own recognizance. They're due in court on March 25.
Gerhardt's lawyer, Matthew Blum, said his client had no intention of abandoning the girl.
