MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Memphis police arrested a man who they say ran into a daycare in an effort to escape arrest.

Terrell Phillips, 22, faces drug and child endangerment charges.

Police say undercover drug officers trailed Phillips and tried to arrest him after he hid more than nine grams of cocaine.

Officers followed Phillips when he ran inside The Academy Daycare on Madison Avenue. No children were hurt, but several parents say the event scared them.
