- Now to that new video, and what a despicable act this is. Video from the Indian River Sheriff's Office up in Central Florida on the East Coast shows a lot of what happened here. It's a man on the run from police, but this is no ordinary chase here. Deputies say, they tried to pull the man over for a traffic stop, and he took off. After a 40 minute chase, he pulled out of the parking lot of an apartment complex. It turned out he had a two-month-old baby in that car. The suspect got out of the car and then threw the baby at the deputy. Amazingly, the deputy caught that baby. Deputies tackled the suspect and say he violently resisted. He's now facing several charges, including two for child abuse.
