    The Jennings Police Department released a video of their officer firing shots at a suspect's car with a 11-month-old baby inside. The dash camera video of the high speed chase was from the police cruiser of Velda City Police Chief Daniel Paulino. The Jennings officer who fired the shots, David Hauck, resigned last Friday.

    The suspect driver, Latyra Roberts, leads Velda City's Police Chief on the pursuit. They reach speeds over 100 mph on I-70. The pursuit continues onto the streets of St. Louis at high speeds and past red lights.

    Suspect Roberts nearly misses a head on with a school bus. She drove over sidewalks and on a lawn to get around concrete planters. She nearly t-boned a vehicle and headed into areas where kids crossed the street in front of her. She also sped the wrong way on a street divided by a median.

    At the end of the pursuit, an undercover St. Louis Police Officer throws out a stop stick. Then Jennings Officer David Hauck takes three shots at the tires. Officer Hauck appears to yell something as he runs around the back of his unit.

    The stop stick is what ended the chase. Velda City's Police Chief caught up with the vehicle about 8 blocks later, then arrested the suspect after a fight. She was pregnant and she had a one year old child in a safety seat. However, a police photo documents that the seat was laying loose, and unbuckled, in the back seat. Police have charged the female suspect with endangering that child, among other things.

    Officer Hauck may not have known the driver was a woman -- or that she had a child in the car.

    Jennings interim Police Chief Troy Doyle said officer Haulk violated the Departments new 'use of force' policy, because the suspect was not driving directly at the officer. He said, "These incidents cannot be tolerated and will not be tolerated. Our citizens expect more out of our law enforcement agencies and again, we are at fault, and we are dealing with it."

    *No Audio* Shots fired at the 1:33 mark.

    I heard about this on the news today. Apparently the woman was running from the police with a kid in the backseat and she's pregnant. :facepalm:

    Must have been vitriolic rhetoric that led to this.

    When I saw her almost ram a school bus I thought a rocket launcher into the car would be ok.
