A man suspected of leaving his 5-month-old daughter in a sweltering minivan was so distraught by her death that he tried to grab an officer's gun in an apparent suicide attempt shortly before he was arrested, police said Friday. At the hospital -- where firefighters had rushed baby Jasmine on Thursday -- John Michael Dunton, 42, said he forgot that his daughter was in the car. He tried to grab an officer's gun; doctors used a sedative to calm him, police said.

Deputy Dist. Atty. Scott Simmons said that in the case of John Michael Dunton, "there was no evidence and no facts to support anything other than that he just forgot." For the case to be considered criminal, Simmons said, "it's got to be more than just a mistake caused by inattention or forgetfulness.
