SEQUOYAH COUNTY, Okla. - A woman who was allegedly kidnapped at gunpoint Saturday night was found early Sunday morning in Sequoyah County after the car she was being held hostage in was involved in an accident.


Police say a semi was heading westbound on I-40 and had just crossed the Arkansas-Oklahoma state line when he was hit by the suspect's car.

The suspect drove away, and police began their search.

Later, police found the suspect's car near Sallisaw.

When a deputy attempted to pull the car over, the suspect refused to stop and tried to drive away.

But the driver, Theodore Redman, didn't get far.

He soon crashed into a barrier cable, and was taken into custody.

When deputies started questioning Redman's 24-year-old female passenger, she told authorities that she had been kidnapped at gunpoint the night before.

Oklahoma deputies were able to confirm her story with the Little Rock Police Department.

Redman reportedly told authorities that he was planning on going to Oklahoma City.

Redman is facing several charges in connection to the hit and run.  He is also expected to be extradited back to Little Rock, where he will face charges for kidnapping.
