A 19-year-old man was arrested on the University of Notre Dame campus Wednesday after he allegedly held a student against her will.

The Notre Dame Police Department was first notified of a reckless driver around 9 a.m. Wednesday, prompting them to investigate. They found the driver near the Eck Baseball Stadium on campus.

ABC 57 News reports the driver, James Thompson, was not a Notre Dame student but had met with a freshman on campus that was a high school acquaintance.

The student told police that Thompson had not allowed her to get out of his car, but that she was eventually able to escape from him without injury.

Thompson was arrested on charges of Felony Criminal Confinement, Reckless Driving and Driving Without a License. He’s being held in the St. Joseph County Jail.
