Baby thrown off quad

On today's episode of "I hope your child is removed from your custody," an 18-month-old was ejected from a quad at the Laurel Mall yesterday.

A couple was drunkenly driving an ATV in the parking lot--with is a sketchy death trap for cars, let alone quads--when the cops showed up...and they tried to flee into the fields behind Rural King. Then hit a bump, which ejected their child from the vehicle.

Between the quad, Laurel Mall, Pechins Beer Distributor, and Rural King, this is, like, the most Fayette County story ever.
Both are charged with endangering the welfare of a child, fleeing and eluding, aggravated assault and DUI. Both were arraigned before District Judge Mike Defino Jr. and lodged in Fayette County Jail on $75,000 bail.  
They were both given 17 criminal charges, plus a bonus charge for the woman, presumably the baby's mother. The man, Eric Ritenour, is already on probation for drunk-driving and drug-possession charges and has also pled guilty in the past to traffic and hunting violations.

For her part, Hall has been previously charged with drug possession and has pled guilty to harassment and and public drunkenness.
