Man Jumps From 2nd Story Window To Evade Amarillo Police
Casey Taylor found out the hard way that a local bail bondswoman walks her talk.
Zee of A&B Bail Bonds will bail you out of jail on the condition that you show up to court and you fulfill your bond conditions. If you don't? Zee will personally give you a ride back to the slammer--free of charge.
Sounds reasonable, considering that bondsmen will be the ones in the hot seat financially if their clients don't show up to court. If someone is nice enough to get you out of jail, one would think they would abide by the conditions set forth, right?
Casey Robert Taylor, 24, was a little lackluster in meeting one of those conditions and Zee revoked that bond faster than you can blink. Not only that, she joined in on the hunt for Taylor in Amarillo on Saturday night.
Zee and officers with Amarillo Police Department showed up at a local hotel that Taylor was reported to be at with an arrest warrant in hand. They announced their presence and made entry into the room.
However, Taylor had already made a dramatic exit by jumping out of the second story hotel window.
According to Zee,
We opened the door and he jumped out the window like Spider Man. We were shocked. We were like, 'what the hell, man?'
Zee also pointed out how, most of the time, windows in hotels don't open. The jump from the second story window was something they weren't expecting.
Police officers and K-9 units had already set up a perimeter around the hotel prior to the warrant being served. Taylor was able to elude police on foot for 30 minutes before he was apprehended.
He was then transported to Potter County Detention Center on his felony warrant out of Hutchinson County for fraudulent use or possession of identifying information, a state jail felony.
His arraignment hearing is scheduled for September 1, 2022.
The moral of the story? If you bond out through A&B, behave or be prepared to meet Mama Zee.
