PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- A Pensacola woman has been arrested after authorities say they tried arrest her for shoplifting and she threw the baby at a deputy as she tried to escape.
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 allegedly ran from the car and threw the car seat with the baby inside at the deputy.
The infant was not injured.
Two other young children were also in the car.
