A Youngsville woman who escaped police custody Tuesday is now behind bars.
Ashley Perkins was arrested last night. She is charged with simple escape.
Perkins was wanted by Abbeville police on the traffic charges and was a suspect in another traffic incident that took place in Lafayette.
Officials say Perkins escaped from Youngsville police while still handcuffed, leading two schools to go under lockdown.
Perkins remains in the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
