nullKOB Eyewitness News 4 has learned more details about the arrest of a woman who police said slipped out of her handcuffs and ran into an Albuquerque elementary school.

According to the Department of Corrections, the incident started when Samantha Amos failed to report to her probation officer Thursday.

Amos then reported to the probation office on Friday for a standard urine test, but it’s what police believe she did to fake that test that sparked her arrest in the first place.

Police say she was with her boyfriend, Armando Garcia, and before she walked into the office she hid a container of someone else’s urine in her privates.

Amos was then taken into custody and that is when the probation officer says she somehow slipped out of one of her handcuffs and ran away.

Police found her about five minutes later at Monte Vista Elementary, less than 500 feet from the probation office.

Shortly after her arrest an officer went to search Garcia’s car but they said Garcia started his engine and drove towards the officer.

That officer reported that he had to jump out of the way to avoid getting hit.

Both Garcia and Amos are still in custody.
