Bossier City, La. Police Department:

Bossier City police arrested a Shreveport woman after she was caught shoplifting at a local store and then intentionally rammed an employee with a stroller containing two small children.

Patrol officers arrested Brittany Dianne Lafitte, 24, Thursday after responding to a shoplifting call at the Dillard's store at Pierre Bossier Mall. Store personnel reported seeing Lafitte conceal articles of women's clothing in a bag and then escorted her to a security office. While in the office, Lafitte reportedly became hostile toward store and security personnel and proceeded to ram a baby stroller that she had with her containing two girls, ages 3 and 1, into a store employee in an attempt to leave the office. The employee was not seriously hurt. Lafitte was subsequently arrested on charges of shoplifting, disturbing the peace, aggravated battery, contributing to the delinquency of juveniles and cruelty to juveniles. She was booked into the Bossier City Jail with a total bond of $12,500. She was also booked on a bench warrant for failing to appear on an unrelated charge of harassing phone calls.

Neither child was seriously hurt in the incident. Both were released to the custody of a relative.
