A 30-year-old man named Stephen Taylor Barnes was taken into custody in Carson City on August 15, facing charges of second-degree kidnapping and possession of dangerous drugs.

During the encounter, Barnes suddenly accelerated the car while the deputy was partly inside, causing the deputy to let go and exit the vehicle safely. Barnes managed to escape temporarily but was later located at a gas station by other deputies. After a pursuit, Barnes was eventually stopped and taken into custody at an intersection.

Upon searching Barnes’s car, deputies found methamphetamine and related paraphernalia in a black fanny pack. Barnes now faces multiple charges, including second-degree kidnapping, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug-related items, and obstructing a peace officer. The “Second-degree Kidnapping and Possession of Dangerous Drugs” incident highlights the challenges law enforcement faces when dealing with drug-related incidents and individuals resisting arrest.

NOTE:    Barnes was charged with second-degree kidnapping due to his actions of forcibly resisting law enforcement and restricting the deputy’s movement during the confrontation. According to Stimmel Law, kidnapping can encompass unlawfully restraining someone against their will, even without physically moving them.
