DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Two men have been charged in connection with the death of a baby boy who was run over in his child seat in a Des Moines driveway.

Des Moines police say in a news release that 26-year-old Brian Garrett and 33-year-old Deanthony Clark have been arrested. Jail records say both remained in custody on Thursday. Court records don't list the men's attorneys.

Police say Garrett was the father of the 4-month-old child, Breland Garrett. Brian Garrett is charged with child endangerment. Clark's charges include operating while intoxicated and five counts of neglect of a dependent.

Police say Breland was placed on the driveway in front of a sport utility vehicle as several children were being loaded on Aug. 30. The SUV subsequently moved forward and ran over Breland.
