Garth’s ex-wife flees kidnapper

Garth Brooks’ former wife Sandy Brooks escaped a would-be kidnapper, Tuesday, April 4. Sandy was apparently kidnapped at gunpoint by a man who worked on her Oklahoma farm. The man, Quintine Cornelius Harper, had been wanted on an outstanding warrant, and when a bondsman came on the property to arrest him, Harper forced Sandy to get into a car and ordered her to drive away. After several miles, Sandy stopped the car and bailed out, fleeing into a convenience store to call police. Harper was arrested and charged with kidnapping and weapons offenses. Sandy and Garth’s three daughters from their previous marriage were not present at the time of the incident.
