The family of Timothy Simpkins, 18, gathered outside the jail and joined in a prayer circle before escorting Simpkins to be processed and released.

Simpkins was transferred from the Arlington jail to the Tarrant County facility before being released Thursday afternoon.

He was being held on a $75,000 bond on three charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
