Dallas Woman Throws Baby Into Vehicle to Avoid Repossession

DALLAS (AP) - A woman is accused of throwing her year-old son
into her SUV in a failed attempt to stop the vehicle from being
repossessed in Dallas.

Krystal Gardner of Tool was jailed Wednesday on bail of nearly
$3,800 on charges including child endangerment related to
abandonment, no driver's license and no insurance.

Electronic records at the Lew Sterrett Justice Center did not
list an attorney for the 28-year-old mother, who was booked Monday.

Recovery agent Luke Ross told KTVT-TV that he was in the Ford
Expedition when he saw Gardner toss the baby through an open
window. He says the baby landed on the seat "like a kid bouncing
on a bed."

Texas law bans a vehicle from being repossessed if a person is
inside.

Police were called. The uninjured baby was removed, for
placement with his father. Ross then repossessed the SUV.
