A Sylvester man was arrested Tuesday for kidnapping after he refused to let a known female out of the vehicle he was driving.
According to Lt. Col. Bobby Brannen with the Tift County Sheriff’s Office, a 21-year-old female acquaintance of 27-year-old Michael Bozeman’s reported that they left a local restaurant and had an argument. She reported that Bozeman said he would take her to the “worst” part of Tifton and leave her.
She said she tried to exit the vehicle and that Bozeman grabbed her clothing and wouldn’t let her out. She said he drove to unknown areas in the county, during which time he produced a black semi-automatic handgun and fired several shots out the window of the vehicle.
The female reported that Bozeman later stopped at a local car dealership and she was able to get help.
Brannen said during the investigation, Deputy Luke Jordan recovered a black semi-automatic pistol from the vehicle that Bozeman was operating.
Bozeman was arrested and has been charged with kidnapping and reckless conduct.
