A man who fled a traffic stop in Florida on May 26 reportedly threw a baby at an Indian River County Sheriff's deputy after his vehicle was disabled and he ran away on foot.

Deputies used spike strips to disable the car as the driver led deputies into the Taylor Point Apartment Complex in Gifford.

 At that moment, the sheriff's office said James ran from his car while carrying a small child in his arms.

As James ran down a breezeway in the complex, the sheriff's office said he tossed the 2-month-old baby at Deputy Curby, CBS 12 reports.

"It was kind of awkward. I couldn’t chase him, I couldn’t tackle him, not a whole lot I can do because he had the baby," said Deputy Jacob Curby. "He just turned around, no regard, not a little toss or anything, he just turned around, overhand threw this two month old at me from about 6 feet away."

Curby caught the infant and the child was not hurt.

The suspect was captured and faces multiple charges, including aggravated child abuse.
