A Florida woman allegedly threw a three-month-old baby at a sheriff's deputy who was trying to stop her for questioning about suspected shoplifting.

According to the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, Ashley Taylor Wright, 23, was suspected of hiding $261 worth of clothing from a Dillard's department store in a baby stroller and leaving the store.

When a deputy tried to stop her in the parking lot of the Santa Rosa Mall, Wright allegedly held the 14-pound child's infant carrier in front of her and said, "You will have to shoot through the baby to get to me."
