The Colorado Springs man accused of throwing a two-year-old boy out of the car into traffic will appear in court today. This afternoon Bryant Hickcox will appear before a judge for the first time via video as he's advised of the attempted murder charges against him. 

We've been tracking this disturbing story for you since it happened last Friday. 

Colorado Springs Police officers arrested a man that they suspect threw a two year old boy out into traffic along Academy Boulevard Friday night. 
A motorist spotted the child at around 9:00 p.m. near the intersection with Airport Road and called 911. 

According to police, drivers had to swerve to avoid the child. The witnesses then detained Bryant Hickcox, age 30, until officers arrived.

He's being held at the El Paso County Criminal Justice Center accused of attempted murder. No drivers hit the little boy, officers say he suffered minor injuries. The child is Hickcox's cousin.

It's still unclear what led up to this incident. We'll be following this case closely and keep you updated on what we learn.
