(Franklin) — A local man is in the Heard County jail today charged with kidnapping after an early October incident involving his ex-girlfriend.

37-year-old Kenneth James Weber was arrested last Wednesday, October 27 and charged with Kidnapping stemming from an incident that occurred on October 5, 2015 near the Centralhatchee community.

According to a report from lead investigator Sgt. Dan Boswell of the Heard County Sheriff’s Office, Weber forced the 28-year-old female victim into his vehicle near her home and began driving away.

Weber eventually forced the female out of the car after she continuously fought and kicked him several times.

No bond has been set in the case and the investigation is ongoing. Additional charges may be pending.
