A Lexington man is charged with kidnapping after police said he forced another man to drive him around at gunpoint late Monday night.
Police checked on the victim around 10:30 p.m. after a family member told them he was being held against his will.
The victim told officers he was OK, but just 30 minutes later, police said 19-year-old Keon Blackburn held the man at gunpoint while he drove.
Police said Blackburn was angry at another person after some sort of transaction earlier in the day. He allegedly wanted the victim to drive him to find that person.
Blackburn ran from police after the victim stopped his car at the intersection of Ohio Street and Third Street. He was arrested after police found him hiding behind a building on Chestnut Street.
Police have not released details on the "transaction".
Blackburn is scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday.
