MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - An East Prairie, Missouri mother and son have been arrested in connection with an assault and attempted escape.

Jeremy Lee Warren, 28, was charged with second degree assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest and escape/attempted escape from custody.

Sandra Kay Grissom, 50, was charged with aiding escape of a prisoner confined for a felony. Her bond was set at $50,000.

According to Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore, the incident began in late July when Chief Deputy Charlie Marcum and Captain Ken Story were "flagged down" by a resident who reported finding an unresponsive woman inside of a nearby home.

When they entered the home, deputies say they found the woman and gave medical attention until she was taken by an ambulance to an area hospital.

While on the scene, deputies saw Jeremy Warren, whom they knew to have active felony warrants throughout the region.

As the deputies approached, they say Warren bolted to a nearby vehicle. They Chief Deputy Marcum was able to stop his escape by reaching into the moving vehicle and turning it off.

Warren the allegedly resisted efforts to detain him, but after a brief struggle, he was arrested.

During the struggle, one of the deputies was cut on his forearm.

While his injury was being looked over, Warren's mother, Sandra Grissom, allegedly opened the patrol car door, and Warren fell out of the vehicle onto his head.

Due to injuries from the fall, an ambulance was called and it was suggested he be taken to an area hospital.

At the time. Sheriff Moore said each of the agencies with outstanding warrants for Warren refused to accept him until he had been medically evaluated, so Warren was released to medical personnel.

According to court documents, Warren was arrested in New Madrid County and then returned to Mississippi County.

When he arrived in Mississippi County, Warren was interviewed.

Officers then got arrest warrants for Warren and Grissom.

On Monday, Oct. 26, deputies found Grissom, arrested her and took her to the Mississippi County Detention Center.
