MICHIGAN CITY, Ind. (AP) — A Gary man wanted on kidnapping charges has been arrested.

Indiana State Excise Police say one of its officers working enforcement patrols in Michigan City late Saturday arrested 26-year-old Antoine Terrell Kimbrough after stopping him for driving the wrong way down a one-way street.

Cpl. Brandon Thomas says Kimbrough was wanted in Lake County on three counts of kidnapping, two counts of criminal confinement, one count of criminal confinement resulting in injury, one count of felony domestic battery, and one count of misdemeanor domestic battery. The charges stem from a July 8 incident.

It wasn’t clear whether Kimbrough has an attorney.

Excise police officers have the authority to enforce any state law.
