A kidnapping suspect is behind bars after he led police on a high speed chase through Brazos County.

Police say 28-year-old Ryan Drake asked a College Station man for a ride to the hospital.

On the way, Drake reportedly put an object up against the man's neck and told him to drive to Navasota.

Once in Navasota Drake forced the victim out of his car.

Several hours later police spotted Drake driving the stolen vehicle near Southwest Parkway and Dartmouth in College Station and a chase ensued.

Drake was eventually caught after abandoning the vehicle in a field and now faces a slew of charges including: kidnapping, evading arrest and unauthorized use of a vehicle.

The man who was kidnapped was released unharmed.
