Little Girl from 'Live PD' Incident Suffered Broken Arm

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Richland County deputies now say the two-year-old girl who was part of a struggle captured on the "Live PD" TV show last weekend suffered a broken arm.

Officers said they found out around 5 p.m. Tuesday that the daughter of the suspect, 22-year-old Bryan Allan Martin, had the injury. It was apparently not immediately caught at the hospital, and the girl had to go back for treatment. 

Deputies say they'll now talk to the solicitor's office about addition or upgraded charges against Martin. At this time, it has not been determined the exact charges. 

Martin remains behind bars on a $103,000 bond.

Deputies say Saturday night's incident in Columbia began with a call of a fight at a house party on Pelican Road. Officers say when they got to the scene, Martin drove away.

The pursuit started down Monticello Road then continued onto North Main and Elmore, with Martin's vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed. The van eventually crashed and flipped over at Elmore.

The video taken by the "Live PD" then showed the man identified as Martin get out of the car while holding his  daughter in his arms. Richland County Deputy Chris Mastrianni, who had responded to the scene, attempts to detain the main, and the two get into a struggle, with Martin continuing to hold the child in one arm while trying to hold off Mastrianni with the other.

Eventually the girl was put down, the two continued their struggle, but Mastrianni was able to restrain the man and take him into custody.

Neither Mastrianni nor Bryant suffered severe injuries.
