MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee judge ordered a man to remain in custody Tuesday morning, after he was accused of leading police on a violent chase in the neo-natal ward at Children's Hospital. 

22-year-old Ashanti Hendricks was handcuffed to a wheelchair, and he wore a cast on his left arm, as he briefly appeared in circuit court. 

Prosecutors said Hendricks skipped out on a recent sentencing in a gun case, before Milwaukee Police learned he was seeing his baby at Children's Hospital last Thursday. 

Officers confronted Hendricks in a hospital room. Officials said he put down the baby and tried running off. He was shot twice in his left arm after he allegedly displayed a weapon. 

Officials said he kept trying to escape from the hospital's seventh floor hallway until an officer pointed a gun at him. 

Hendricks is charged with four counts in that incident -- resisting an officer, illegal gun possession as a convicted felon, and two counts of bail jumping.

He's due to be sentenced in February in his previous case, in which he pleaded guilty to felony firearm possession. Other counts were dropped in a plea deal, including evading an officer in a vehicle.
