Police: Fla. mom suspected of shoplifting threw baby at deputy and ran, leaving 2 kids in car

Authorities say a Florida woman she threw her baby at a deputy as she tried to escape when he tried to confront her about shoplifting.

The Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office says 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." Deputies say she then 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.

The Pensacola News Journal (http://on.pnj.com/12YrmWa) reports Wright faces several charges including child abuse. Jail records do not indicate whether she has an attorney.
