(Scroll down for video) A woman, who desperately wanted to escape from police, threw her baby at police officers in order to slow them down, according to police reports in Florida.

Okaloosa County Police said that a Pensacola woman has been arrested for shoplifting. Police also said that while authorities tried to arrest her for stealing, she threw her baby at a deputy while trying to escape.

The Sheriff’s Office of Okaloosa County said that Ashley Taylor Wright tried to smuggle out about $260 worth of items from a Dillard store.

Deputies approached her car in the parking lot Monday night and asked her to come out.
Authorities said the 23-year-old told the deputy, “You have to shoot my baby in order to get me.”
Then, she allegedly ran from the car and threw the car seat with the baby at the deputy.
The child was not injured.

Two other children were also in the car.
