MILWAUKEE (AP) – Milwaukee police say a man was arrested after he was seen running in traffic — trying to hand a baby to passing motorists.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that several vehicles had to dodge the man in the city’s north side on Wednesday.

A witness told police the man had been running into traffic and was holding the baby out toward cars.

When police found the man, he refused to give the 8-month-old girl to them. Officers eventually grabbed him and the baby. Officers later learned the girl had a recent heart transplant.

He was arrested on an accusation of recklessly endangering safety.
