A Florida woman who walked out of a Dillard’s with more than $200 worth of clothing hidden in a baby stroller is facing a number of charges — including child abuse — after she literally THREW her three-month-old daughter at police (after using the baby as a human shield) in a failed getaway attempt.

Police say 23-year-old Ashley Wright, of Pensacola, Fla. was spotted by a store employee with about $260 worth of adult clothes in her daughter’s baby stroller. When she left the store and got in her car, she was approached by a deputy who ordered her to get out.

She refused, obviously, and shouted at her husband to get in the car so they could leave. At one point, she “grabbed the baby carrier and held it in front of her screaming, ‘You will have to shoot through the baby to get to me!” according to a sheriff’s report obtained by The Smoking Gun.

As Wright cursed and screamed at a deputy, two other small children — a little 2-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl — were watching from the backseat.


But if you think that’s bad, keep on reading:

The Pensacola resident then jumped out of the car and “began running away from it with the baby carrier,” which held her infant daughter. As a deputy closed in on her, Wright “threw the baby carrier…at me, about shoulder height,” the report notes.

After dodging the airborne carrier and the 14-pound baby, the deputy apprehended Wright, but not without a struggle. Wright, who was bleeding after she tripped and hit her head on the ground, shook her head from side-to-side, spraying deputies with blood. “Now you mother fuckers have my blood all over you bitches,” she remarked.

Thank GOD the baby wasn’t injured. What type of parent not only uses her infant child as a human shield, but also TOSSES her baby at a police deputy while trying to get away with a couple of stolen outfits, none of which were even for her children, mind you.

When Wright arrived for treatment at a local hospital, she was a lot more calm and explained to police that her “night of bad decisions” probably had something to to with the beers she drank earlier that day.

Wright admitted to stealing the clothes, but claimed “it was because her kids needed school clothes,” but the only thing she stole was a woman’s shirt and two pairs of “Miss Me” jeans, not children’s clothing.

In addition to felony child abuse for throwing her baby and using her as a human shield, Wright was also charged with petty theft and resisting an officer. She was reportedly booked into the county jail and her bond was set at $7,000.
