In the United States, a scene where a man in his 20s, who kidnapped his girlfriend’s baby, presented the baby as a human shield when facing the police, was filmed with the police’s body camera, and anger is spreading .

On the 3rd (local time), foreign media such as the Daily Mail reported that Brandon Matthew Douglas Lerner, 27, was arrested by the local sheriff’s office on the 27th on various charges, including obstruction of justice, assault, and child abduction in Flagler County, Florida.

On the day of the incident, his girlfriend reported the kidnapping to the sheriff’s office around 6 pm. The girlfriend claimed that Runner came to his house with a pistol and took the 1-year-old baby. It was also said that the runner drove the car violently with the baby sitting on his lap. Moments later, the sheriffs arrived and found the runner driving dangerously across the lane.

The sheriffs tried to stop him, but he didn’t respond and started running away. As the siege narrowed, he eventually stopped in the McDonald’s parking lot and started running with his one-year-old baby.

In body camera footage of the sheriff’s arrest, the Runner leaned against the building and held the child in front of his chest as more than three sheriffs began to surround him. When the sheriffs grab a taser and try to aim it, it looks like he’s using a baby as a shield. A baby in a diaper cries as if startled by the noise.

The sheriffs shout “put the baby down” several times, but the runner looks around as if trying to find an escape route. In the end, a sheriff’s taser shot misses the baby and is hit by the Runner, and the Runner leans forward with the baby. Soon after, the sheriffs rush in and save the baby.

The Runner was immediately taken to hospital and then transferred to a detention facility. The baby is said to be in a safe condition.

Flagler County Sheriff Rick Starley said: “The deputy sheriffs did their best to safely rescue the child and arrest the suspect.
