Escaped Bedford Co. Inmate Captured After Escape

Andrew Marshall escaped custody Thursday

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - Authorities captured a man who escaped from the Bedford County jail.

The sheriff's office has not revealed how Andrew Marshall escaped from the jail. However, he has escaped from the jail in the past. Reports stated this was the fifth time he escaped from the Bedford County Sheriff's Office and the second time from the jail.

In October 2017, he was one of three men who escaped custody, but Marshall was captured within a day.

Authorities said he was supposed to be shackled while in the shower, but a new employee did not know that. A guard went out the backdoor, which did not shut completely, and Marshall escaped through it.

Deputies attempted to chase him, but he got away. He was in jail on misdemeanor charges.

Marshall was arrested Friday night. The details of his capture were not released.
