A man from Richmond, Virginia was arrested after he allegedly kidnapped his own mother. According to a video report from GeoBeats, the 20-year-old was en route to Florida -- and he had his mother in the trunk of his car. The man was in South Carolina when he got pulled over -- state police recognized the car from a previous alert that went out after the man and his mother went "missing."
The man told police that at some point along the journey he decided to put his mother in the trunk. He did say that he stopped at a Dairy Queen to get her something to eat but when she tried to escape, he punched her numerous times. Police promptly arrested him and his mother was taken to a nearby medical center to be checked out. She is expected to be okay but her son is now facing serious charges.
