Stepfather Faces Kidnapping Charges Stemming From Picking His Stepchild Up from School for Starters

When there’s a custody dispute, usually it’s between the parents of the child.

And there are still more possibilities – in fact. Probably very long shots under the law.

A California stepfather grasped at one of those possibilities as his marriage was breaking up.

The man picked his stepson up from school.

The man’s car was spotted almost immediately by a retired Department of Justice officer.

With the California Highway Patrol in pursuit, the man stopped his flight.

The man was arrested on kidnapping charges for taking off with his stepson.
