A Maryland man arrested for abduction on CBBT pleads guilty

(WVEC) -- A man involved with abducting his girlfriend in Maryland, and was apprehended by Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel Police in October of 2015 has pleaded guilty on Tuesday.

Phillip James Timmons has pleaded guilty to abduction and the use of firearms in the commission of a felony.

On October 4, 2015, Timmons broke in the front door of his girlfriend's Maryland home after she told him not to come over.

His girlfriend contacted police, but Phillip took the phone and ended the call. When 911 called back the defendant told the victim to say she was okay. Instead, she told the police her address and said she needed help.

Timmons grabbed the victim's gun and forced her out of the house and into his vehicle.

Several times while driving Phillip pulled out the gun and put it to the victim's head while saying they just needed to make it past the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Once the pair reached the tunnel, due to wind advisory they were directed to the side to load item from the truck into a van.

Timmons agrees, and before getting out of the truck he showed the gun to the victim telling her to not do anything.

Once they reached the other side of the victim decided that was her only opportunity to get away.

When Timmons got out of the car to get his things from the van, the victim locked the doors and moved to the driver's seat.

Phillip ran after her pointing the gun at her to not do that.

The victim put the truck into drive and drove toward the police station. When she stopped at a stop sign Timmons jumped into the back of the truck.

The victim continued to drive toward the CBBT police station, and Officer Spreder stepped out of the office.

The officer asked if the victim was okay and she said no and told him she was kidnapped from Maryland.

Timmons and the officer started to struggle, and with the assistance of 2 state troopers, he was taken into custody and the gun was secured.
