Ap­pre­hended again

Wind­sor man ar­rested after flee­ing from cus­tody, as­sault­ing po­lice


Wind­sor Dis­trict RCMP re-ap­pre­hended a sus­pect Oct. 28 after he fled from cus­tody fol­low­ing an al­ter­ca­tion where he al­legedly as­saulted po­lice of­fi­cers.

Ac­cord­ing to an RCMP press re­lease, 31-year-old Kerry Lee Samp­son was ar­rested by mem­bers of the Wind­sor RCMP de­tach­ment with­out in­ci­dent at a res­i­dence in Three Mile Plains at ap­prox­i­mately 6 p.m. on Oct. 28 after he re­sisted ar­rest ear­lier that day.

The day be­fore, shortly after noon on Oct. 27, Samp­son had been ar­rested by mem­bers of the Wind­sor RCMP De­tach­ment at a res­i­dence on Stan­nus Street in Wind­sor for an al­leged court or­der vi­o­la­tion.

Samp­son re­sisted ar­rest and is al­leged to have as­saulted po­lice of­fi­cers dur­ing this in­ci­dent.

RCMP of­fi­cers dis­charged an en­ergy weapon on Samp­son dur­ing this al­ter­ca­tion, ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease.

Samp­son was then brought into po­lice cus­tody and taken to hospi­tal for treat­ment.

At ap­prox­i­mately 5 p.m. Oct. 27, Samp­son was re­leased from the hospi­tal and back into po­lice cus­tody.

On their way back to the Wind­sor de­tach­ment, the of­fi­cers stopped at the Stan­nus Street res­i­dence for Samp­son to pick up some nec­es­sary per­sonal be­long­ings.

Dur­ing this stop at the res­i­dence, Samp­son al­legedly fled from po­lice on foot.

The of­fi­cers im­me­di­ately chased after Samp­son, but were un­able to lo­cate and ap­pre­hend him.

An ear­lier press re­lease said nu­mer­ous re­sources were de­ployed in an ef­fort to lo­cate him. An ar­rest war­rant was also is­sued.

The de­scrip­tion of Samp­son said he was wear­ing grey sweat pants, a hospi­tal gown and no shoes at the time of his es­cape. His hands were also hand­cuffed when he fled from po­lice.

He was later re­ported as be­ing spot­ted in dif­fer­ent ap­parel and with­out hand­cuffs on Panuke Road be­fore his even­tual ar­rest in Three Mile Plains.

Samp­son re­mains in po­lice cus­tody and was sched­uled to ap­pear in court Oct. 30 to an­swer to nu­mer­ous charges, in­clud­ing:

· Two charges of fail­ure to com­ply with con­di­tions of un­der­tak­ing

· Two charges of as­sault on a po­lice of­fi­cer

· Re­sist­ing/ob­struct­ing a peace of­fi­cer

· Es­cape cus­tody

This isn’t the first time Samp­son has at­tempted to flee from po­lice cus­tody. He was pre­vi­ously ar­rested on a provincewide war­rant and fled from po­lice in Au­gust 2016. He was even­tu­ally ar­rested, shirt­less, in the drive-thru lane of the Wind­sor McDon­alds.
