Deputies arrested Mostek in Grand Island after getting a warrant.

He was arrested on suspicion of motor vehicle homicide, two counts of child abuse, reckless driving, false reporting and no seat belt.

Williamson was also referred to the Hall County Attorney’s Office for false reporting, according to the sheriff’s office.
