Pensacola, FL (The Weekly Vice) - Ashley Taylor Wright, a 23-year-old Florida woman, was jailed Monday after she allegedly threw her baby at deputies when they tried to arrest her for shoplifting.
According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Wright was at the Santa Rosa Mall in Mary Esther Monday evening when she allegedly used a baby stroller to smuggle $260 worth of clothing out of a Dillards department store.
When a deputy approached her out in the parking lot, she hopped into a car and told her husband (who was the driver) to flee the scene.
When the deputy ordered Wright to exit the vehicle, she held up her baby and told the deputy "You will have to shoot through the baby to get to me."
She then tossed the child, who was strapped into a baby carrier, at the deputy and tried to flee the scene on foot.
She was promptly tackled to the pavement and placed into custody.
Wright was booked into the Okaloosa County Jail and charged with child abuse, petty theft and resisting an officer without violence.
