BALTIMORE — A Hampden man will spend the rest of his life in prison.

On Friday, 32-year-old Timothy Robert Meadows was sentenced to 100 years behind bars on multiple counts of kidnapping and armed carjacking.

Back on April 2, 2019, Meadows and an accomplice purposely bumped into a vehicle on the Baltimore Beltway, to lure the other driver out of their car.

When they did, Meadows beat them in the head with a pipe. Somehow the victim was able to fight back and escape.

Five-minutes later, Baltimore County prosecutors say Meadows intentionally bumped into a second car.

After that driver pulled over, Meadows beat her with a pipe, and forced her into the back of her own car.

Meadows kidnapped her and twice went to a bank to use the victim's ATM card.

After about five hours of holding the victim against her will, Meadows released her.

Police found him in the victim's stolen car about an hour later and placed him under arrest.

A jury convicted him back in January. The second suspect's fate is unclear.
