Florida woman threw baby at deputy, authorities say

Posted: Updated:

PENSACOLA (AP) - A Pensacola woman under arrest for shoplifting threw a baby at a deputy as she tried to escape, authorities say.

Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office said Ashley Taylor Wright tried to smuggle about $260 worth of clothing from a Dillard's dressing room. Deputies approached her car in the parking lot Monday night and asked her to get out.

Authorities said the 23-year-old told the deputy, "You will have to shoot through the baby to get me." She then reportedly ran from the car and threw the car seat, with the baby inside, at a deputy. The infant was not injured. Two other young children were also in the car.

The Pensacola News Journal reports Wright faces several charges, including child abuse.
