A Wichita County grand jury has failed to indict a California couple accused of abducting a Burkburnett toddler and running down his grandmother as she tried to rescue him. 

In November of last year, Michael Scott Smith, 48, and Robin Michelle Golden, 51, were charged with aggravated assault with a vehicle and accident involving an injury.

However, Smith was no-billed on both charges and a grand jury failed to indict Golden on the aggravated assault charge.

Police said a custody battle was underway for Smith’s two-year-old son and the boy’s mother.

The boy’s mother told officers Smith had come from California to see his children, and when he had his youngest child in his arms, he took off running toward a car and yelled at the driver, Robin Golden, to drive off.

She said as the car began leaving, the boy’s grandmother ran up to stop them before Golden put the car in reverse and an open door hit the grandmother and knocked her down.

The mother said Golden then went forward and ran over the grandmother, and sped off.

  The boy was found safe in Santa Rosa, New Mexico several hours after he was taken.
