CELEB REFRESH: Jennifer Garner’s Funny Reaction to Humans of New York Story
Jennifer Garner couldn’t believe the story of Bobby Love, a man who escaped from prison and started a family before being re-arrested 40 years later.
Bobby and his wife Cheryl’s story was featured on the Humans of New York Instagram account this week.
In the first post, Cheryl recalled being in her apartment in 2015 when police knocked on her door and raced toward her husband, forcing him to reveal a secret he’d kept for 40 years — his real name was Walter Miller, and he’d escaped from prison almost 40 years prior.
As the Humans of New York account continued to reveal the story through posts, Jennifer was in a frenzy to find out how it ended: “Hurry up!!!” she wrote, and then: “Holy nuts.”
Ultimately, we found out that Bobby was sentenced to 25 to 30 years in prison, but escaped while he was riding a prisoner transport bus to a work site, according to The News & Observer.
As People notes, Bobby hid his civilian clothes under his prison uniform, jumped out of the emergency exit of the bus while it was stopped and ran off, later spending $10 on a bus ticket to Manhattan.
Once free of the prison, he changed his name from Walter to Bobby Love.
