Cops Hold Pregnant Woman in Labor at Gunpoint as She Tries to Rush to Hospital
Having given birth three times before, Rachel Kohnen knew something was different when she went into labor suddenly on Tuesday. She said she knew she was going to have the baby very soon. And so when the cops tried to pull her husband over as he was speeding to the hospital, she screamed for him not to stop.
She called 911 to explain what was going on, but the dispatcher couldn’t properly hear her through her contractions.
Soon after, the cops threw out tire spikes and all their tires went flat. They then held the two at gunpoint.
“I was in the middle of the highway having contractions with guns pointed at me,” Kohnen told WHO-TV.
The couple was released when officers realized it was a medical emergency. Kohnen gave birth an hour after being admitted into the hospital.
