SHERMAN, TX -- A Sherman man was arrested for kidnapping after allegedly getting into a vehicle and threatening the driver on Sunday.

Police say 29-year-old Steven Justin Cole caused a disturbance at the Walmart of Highway 82.

They say he managed to get into the passenger side of a pickup driving on the service road by threatening to hurt the driver, who then drove through several red lights.

The truck was hit at the intersection of 82 and Highway 75 near the Exxon Gas Station and Cole ran from the scene, but was arrested at the Starbucks and taken to a nearby hospital.

Police say they believe he was on drugs at the time.

Cole was jailed for kidnapping and his bond set at $15,000.
