The brother of an Arkansas mayor was arrested Monday night for allegedly stealing a car with two children inside, a report said.

Darrell Lamont Scott — brother of Little Rock mayor Frank Scott, Jr. —  hopped into the car as the engine was running in the parking lot outside Baptist Hospital, according to KATV.

“Don’t worry, I’m the mayor’s brother,” Darell, 31, told the children’s parents after grabbing one of the kids’ cellphones to speak to them after the abduction.

Scott is accused of driving with the kids to McCain Mall in North Little Rock, where he was later arrested in the parking lot, the report said.
