Ga. woman runs over son during attempted getaway

CENTERVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police say an accused shoplifter ran over her 4-year-old son while running from a loss prevention officer.

Authorities say 25-year-old Arkebia Albury is charged with child cruelty, reckless conduct and theft by shoplifting in the Thursday evening incident. Centerville police say the boy is hospitalized with critical injuries to his head and internal organs.

Police Chief Sidney Andrews tells The Telegraph of Macon 1 of Albury's children got into the passenger side of the car, but the 4-year-old boy was run over as the loss prevention officer approached.

Andrews says Albury put the boy in the back seat, ignoring the officer's plea to leave the child where he was and wait for an ambulance.

She was arrested soon after. It's unclear if she has an attorney.
