Talk about a hero, I would bet this Chicago police officer didn’t wake up yesterday morning expecting to have a baby thrown at him. On any given day a police officer can expect to experience all kinds of things, most of them are usually not good. Read more about the Chicago police officer after the jump.

Police were called to a domestic disturbance at about 12:30 a.m. Monday in the 1500 block of South Pulaski. While en route, the call was upgraded to a kidnapping, according to a police report.

When the officers got to the scene, witnesses pointed to a man in his 20s who they said had taken a baby, who was less than a year old. The officers approached the man, who was walking down the middle of the street with the child in his hands. He then turned and threw the baby at an officer, who caught the child.

As the officer returned the baby to the waiting mother, the suspect began punching the other officer. A fight between the two officers and the suspects began and lasted several minutes before the man was arrested, police said. Both officers were injured during the fight.

A perfect ending to the story would be, that someday the officer and child meet again under better circumstances.
