A Columbus man faces jail time after police accused him of kidnapping a toddler.
James Scott is charged with felony kidnapping and reckless conduct in connection with an argument that turned sour. Police say that according to the 2-year-old’s mother, Scott took the boy without permission around 5 a.m. Sunday. Scott is the boy’s biological father. They report that the incident took place at a South Side Court apartment.
CPD later arrested Scott, 41, at a Rigdon Road apartment. The 2-year-old boy was returned to his mother in good health, police say, around 8:30 later that morning.
