Mom Accused of Going on Violent Rampage With 2-Week-Old Baby Strapped to Her Chest

Say What!? 21

Moms are known for their multitasking, but one mom brought it way beyond nursing while simultaneously filing work reports and making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. A Seattle woman allegedly bit a firefighter, threatened to kill a cop, beat her boyfriend into unconsciousness -- all while her 2-week-old baby was strapped to her chest.

It all started when the woman, Sharee N. Seminole, got into an argument with her boyfriend and father of her newborn. She was allegedly able to yell at him, throw him to the ground, and stomp on his face at least eight times, all while carrying her baby. Confronted by bystanders, she reportedly screamed, "You know how many times he's kicked me?" before rushing from the scene.

Her boyfriend was brought to the hospital, unconscious, with his nose broken.

Confronted later by police, the woman was reportedly belligerent, and slurring her words. When they tried to bring her to the police car, she started to fight them, even as the baby was strapped to her chest. Officers reportedly tried to subdue her and get the baby away from her, but she "put up a huge fight." She then allegedly bit a firefighter (Why was a firefighter there? This is all so crazy!) and then mouthed, "I'm gonna kill you" to a police officer.

Wow. Can you imagine doing all of this with your baby on your chest? My guess is she was using her child as a shield -- she probably figured no one could fight back while her baby was right there strapped to her body. She was putting that kid in serious jeopardy though -- someone could have decided to fight back and perhaps it was the baby who took the brunt of it.

The child is now in protective custody. If this is his or her first two weeks of life, I can't imagine what the rest of it is going to be like.

Can you believe this mom?
