Ronnie Wilson, 41, of Hyde Lane, was initially arrested for domestic menacing and resisting arrest, according to Talladega Police Capt. John McCoy, but the felony kidnapping charge was added as the investigation went on.
Wilson is accused of going to the home of his estranged wife on Elm Street, threatening her with a gun and then taking her to the one-lane bridge at Talladega Creek. He then refused to let her leave, McCoy said.
“She ultimately escaped and managed to call the police,” McCoy said. “He was arrested Feb. 13 at his residence.”
Wilson had his initial court appearance before District Judge Jeb Fannin, who set the bond.
Kidnapping in the second degree is a Class B felony, punishable upon conviction by two to 20 years in prison. Domestic menacing and resisting arrest are misdemeanors.
