Illinois man gets 15 years for taking car loaded with baby
TUSCOLA, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for driving away in a car with a baby inside it.
Douglas County State’s Attorney Kate Watson says Tindle ran across a driveway, shouted “Someone is trying to kill me,” and asked for help before pushing the woman aside and driving away.
Tindle drove a few miles before pulling into a ditch, causing extensive damage to the car’s undercarriage.
Police who arrested Tindle found the baby inside the car unharmed.
