New Orleans Walmart Shopper Leaves Baby Behind to Flee Police

10.27.09 Cajun Boy


An New Orleans man stopped by authorities for slipping DVDs into his diaper bag fled on foot from the store’s parking lot, leaving the baby behind. Joshua Gibson was caught a half-hour later and was charged with theft, resisting arrest and child desertion. However, he was not locked up because of jail over-crowding. I wonder if he’ll be forced to wear a sign that reads, “I am a thief, I stole from Walmart AND left my baby behind!”? |Nola.com|
