MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Mid-South woman was arrested after police say she helped her boyfriend Samuel Bridges stay out of police custody.
Bridges, 41, was at a work site around 2 p.m. earlier this week when he allegedly stole a Department of Corrections cargo van, struck a county employee with the vehicle and escaped the facility.
The employee who was hit did not suffer serious injuries.
After escaping, police said he went straight to his girlfriend Michelle Loomis’ neighborhood, parked the stolen vehicle and then walked a street over to her home. The couple then made their way to the Red Roof Inn where they stayed until early the next morning.
