A better headline might be "Arrest for Pushing Woman with Baby Down" (though "knocking" feels like a better verb). Unless it's the case that some thug is using babies as battering rams?

Hah! You're right. That is a better headline. I just changed it. (Note to readers: the original headline said, "Arrest for Pushing Woman Down with Baby.") Thanks for the suggestion. (I'm not sure about "knocking" since it implies that a blow may have been struck.)

Not wearing a seatbelt is an arrestable offense?
