— Woman held against will

A midnight drive resulted in a Pea Ridge man arrested for three felonies - kidnapping, first degree terroristic threatening and first degree domestic battery - and a misdemeanor charge of interference with emergency communications, first degree.

Jeremy Tyler Ramsey, 22, was booked into the Benton County Jail at 3:27 a.m. Sunday, according to the Pea Ridge police.

At 2:38, Pea Ridge police received a report from a 19-year-old Pea Ridge woman reporting that Ramsey, her ex-boyfriend and the father of her unborn child, had kept her against her will in a two-hour drive during which he repeatedly hit her. She told police she agreed to get in Ramsey's car about midnight, but later, when he became aggressive, she asked him to return her to her car and to stop and let her get out. She said she feared for her life and attempted to get out of the moving vehicle and the car door shut on her ankle.

At one point, she told police she was able to get out of the car, but Ramsey drug her back and forced her into the car. He threatened to kill her.

The woman was treated at a local hospital and released.
