MICHIGAN CITY | An Indiana State Excise Police officer arrested a Gary man wanted on kidnapping charges while working enforcement patrols late Saturday in Michigan City, a news release said.
Antoine T. Kimbrough, 26, of Gary, was arrested about 11 p.m. in the area of West 10th Street and Washington Street after an excise officer stopped him for driving the wrong way on a one-way street, police said.
Kimbrough provided the officer with a false name, but his true identity was determined after further questioning, police said.
Kimbrough had an active warrant through Lake County for three counts of kidnapping, two counts of criminal confinement, one count of criminal confinement resulting in injury, one count of felony domestic battery and one count of misdemeanor domestic battery. He was wanted in connection with an incident that occurred July 8 in Gary, police said.
While excise officers have the authority to enforce any state law, they focus primarily on alcohol, tobacco and related laws, the release said.
