When most people are being chased by the police, they usually toss any evidence they are carrying. In Flori-Duh, the criminals throw something else entirely… because Flori-Duh.
A Florida man was in jail with no bail Saturday after authorities said he threw a 2-month-old boy in their direction at the end of a wild vehicle chase near Vero Beach.
A deputy caught the boy, who was unharmed, the Indian River County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. John Henry James III was ultimately booked at the local jail on multiple charges, including battery on an officer and child abuse.
The chase started when a deputy attempted to stop the suspect for “failure to maintain the lane,” the office said. It lasted about 40 minutes and included James driving a white Nissan SUV that struck an unmarked sheriff’s vehicle.
Sadly, the deputy spiked the baby after the amazing catch. (Okay I made that up.)
