    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/09/14/bab....ap/index.html Baby dropped out of car during police chase Tuesday, September 14, 2004 Posted: 6:41 PM EDT (2241 GMT) GREEN BAY, Wisconsin (AP) -- A man being chased by sheriff's deputies dropped his fiancee's 8-month-old daughter out of a moving car, sending the baby tumbling across the highway in her car seat. The girl was unhurt, but the man later was fatally injured in a crash. Dana Bettin, 23, died Sunday, three days after the highway chase that ended when he crashed his 17-year-old fiancee's car into an unoccupied squad car.

    Seems his justice was served. He died.

    Having a 17 year old fiancee, being chased by police, and then throwing babies about on a highway.

    well after actually reading the article, i have to say at least he slowed down before he put the baby on the road. second, at least he didn't keep the baby in the car. that would've been bad news. i have a feeling he had probably knew how the chase was going to end.

    it's disconcerting to read about the actions of desperate people.

    I came to the same conclusion as well after reading the article in its entirety. What he did seems to be more an act of not wanting the baby to be in the chase with him when he drove like a maniac, rather than actually tossing the baby out of the road onto the highway to throw the police off.

    Not that that makes him a "Good Guy" by any means.. but its not quite what headlines try to portray.
