DUNEDIN, Fla. (AP) - A 29-year-old southwest Florida woman has been arrested after witnesses said she repeatedly plucked a baby from its stroller and shook it vigorously.
Witnesses said they saw Gretchen Gludovatz shake the baby while out for a walk Saturday.
Authorities tried to stop Gludovatz. According to an arrest report, an officer touched her shoulder and Gludovatz shoved the deputy, striking her in the jaw.
Gludovatz was charged with child abuse, battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer with violence.
On Sunday, a judge released her on her own recognizance and ordered her to have no unsupervised contact with the child.
