A Mansfield man who struck and killed his daughter outside of the Walmart in Ontario has been arrested on an outstanding warrant out of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Andrew D. Brooks, 25, was arrested Thursday morning at a relative's home in Columbus by members of the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force on drug trafficking charges.

Brooks was wanted for the original charges of sale or transport of marijuana, and possession and sale of marijuana -- both second degree felonies. Brooks is being held at the Franklin County Jail without bond awaiting extradition back to Arizona.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Ross Wilbur said the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office contacted the Task Force on Monday requesting their assistance in locating Brooks.

The Richland County Prosecutor's Office is currently investigating the March 29 death of Andrew's daughter, two-year-old , La'Naya Brooks,  for possible presentation to a grand jury for consideration of charges against him.

The investigation by police revealed Brooks did not have a driver's license and the vehicle did not have a child safety seat for La'Naya at the time of the accident.

Authorities say La'Naya was hit by the SUV driven by her father outside of Walmart.
