Lincoln Getaway Driver Arrested For Drug Possession


A Grand Junction woman who has admitted she was driving the getaway car for Samuel Lincoln has been arrested again on drug charges.

23–year–old Ashley King was arrested Sunday on suspicion of possessing drugs and drug paraphernalia. King was out on bail after confessing to driving the car from which Samuel Lincoln fired shots at Mesa County Deputies during a chase in early November as they were pursing him for attempted murder.

Lincoln and Charles Pruitt are charged with shooting James Finnegan and leaving him for dead. Finnegan survived and the incident spurred a weeks long search for the two men.

Pruitt later gave himself up to authorities. Lincoln was later arrested at a motel in Glenwood Springs.
