HOUSTON, March 20 (UPI) -- Houston police said a man was arrested on a child endangerment charge after allegedly driving around a parking lot with a 7-year-old on top of the car.

Police said Abelardo Araujo told officers he put his 7-year-old stepson on the roof of his car and drove around the Acres Homes parking lot so the child could get a good look at the automobiles on display at a makeshift car show at the location, KPRC-TV, Houston, reported Tuesday.

Araujo was spotted by a police officer driving down West Little York. He was arrested for child endangerment.
