An alleged ride in the trunk of a car ended with the alleged victim relatively uninjured and the alleged perpetrator behind bars facing a felony. The Madison County Sheriff's Department has brought a charge of unlawful restraint against 20-year-old Brett A. Carson of the 400 block of Douglas Avenue in Edwardsville.
Madison County Sheriff's Department Captain Mike Dixon explains the series of events.
Carson allegedly drove from the 2900 block of Idle Acres in Edwardsville to the 7000 block of Illinois Route 111 in South Roxana, where the woman was let out of the trunk. Carson was arrested and held on a $50,000 bond.
