A 45-year-old Cheyenne man was arrested in Wellington, Colorado on Thursday night on several charges, including three counts of second-degree kidnapping and assault.

That's according to a post on the Larimer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.

According to the post, the incident began when Larimer County Dispatch got a report of a white Cadillac traveling southbound on I-25 near Wellington at speeds of around 100 miles per hour.

The caller reported seeing a woman in the car waving her arms and yelling for help.

A Larimer County Sheriff's Deputy spotted the car in Wellington and tried to stop the vehicle, but the car drove away. Deputies blocked the car at the I-25 overpass at the Cleveland Avenue overpass and made a high-risk traffic stop. A man and woman got out of the car, and two children remained inside.

The driver, identified as Derrick Richie of Cheyenne, fought with deputies, but they were eventually able to get him under control and take him into custody. The woman was treated for minor injuries.

Suspect Arrested On Several Charges

Richie was taken to a local hospital, where he was medically cleared and then booked into the Larimer County jail on the following charges:

• 2nd Degree Kidnapping - 3 counts (F4)
• 1st Degree Assault (F3)
• 3rd Degree Assault (M1)
• Child Abuse - Knowingly or Recklessly - 2 counts (M2)
• Drove While Under the Influence of Drugs
• Domestic Violence
Richie's bond was set at $20,000.
