WENATCHEE — A former convict is accused of endangering his three young children and abusing his former girlfriend while trying to avoid police by car.

Christopher L. Josey, 27, grabbed the wheel of the woman’s moving car and steered it toward oncoming traffic after she threatened to expose him to arrest Aug. 2, police said. The woman said Josey’s sons, two 2-year-olds and a 7-year-old, were in the car; Josey had not buckled one of the small children in and he was tossed around the backseat as the car swerved.
