Frantic man hijacks car to get his pregnant girlfriend to hospital

Was Robert Boudreaux's pregnant girlfriend really in such a terrible state that he had to resort to carjacking to get her to the hospital? The girlfriend told police in Florida that the couple ran out of gas and walked around for miles asking for a ride before getting desperate enough to steal a car.

Police are not buying the story because they say the couple walked by a fire station without asking for assistance. It doesn't help that records show Boudreaux has been jailed 19 times since 2002. Perhaps his credibility is shot, no? To top it off, Boudreaux stole the car with a suspended license.

I'm not sure what Boudreaux was thinking when he decided he'd pull a gun out on the driver and ask him to get out of the car, but his expanding criminal record can't possibly be something that will help the economic stability of his unborn child.

We don't know what was wrong with his girlfriend, but she's not getting charged in this whole mess. I hope she doesn't view this as a romantic gesture. There were other options, such as asking firefighters for help. It should make the girlfriend nervous to have someone with an extensive criminal history around her and her child.

I really hope the rest of her pregnancy and their parenting lives are not as dramatic as this. Raising a child is such a tough task and they should focus on being good role models for their baby.
