LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11)-  The Louisville teenager who escaped from custody at the Hall of Justice yesterday is still on the loose, but police have arrested his girlfriend, Ashley Tussey.
 
Police say Tussey picked up Laterrious Bell and drove him to her apartment, where she allegedly lied to officers about his whereabouts, giving him time to escape again.
 
Tussey is charged with aiding and abetting, and hindering prosecution.
  
Bell escaped from a holding cell while waiting for a court appearance.
  
He was arrested Monday on outstanding warrants for robbery and drug trafficking.
  
Police say he got through the steel mesh in the ceiling, climbed into the ceiling and came down into a prosecutor's office.
  
From there, he walked right out of the courthouse.
  
If you know where Bell is, call Crimestoppers at 574-2583.
