Bedford Co. escapee released from Texas jail

Posted: Updated:
NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

It’s hard to keep one guy behind bars.

Andrew Marshall has managed to escape the Bedford County Jail five times.

He was recently arrested in Texas and is wanted in both Bedford and Coffee counties in Tennessee, but a Texas judge released him anyway.

Bedford County Sheriff Austin Swing said he had never seen anything like this happen before.

Swing said he tried calling the sheriff in Texas and the district attorney begging them to hold Marshall until they could come to pick him up, but the judge refused.

Marshall is once again walking around a free - but wanted - man.
