Man Accused Of Kidnapping His Own Mother

An Algood man has been charged with assault and kidnapping -- in a case involving his own mother.  Police say 43-year-old Jeffrey Joseph Bryant allegedly attacked his mother in her home last week, tying her up with a lamp cord and tape. He reportedly then drove her to a hospital in Madison, Tennessee, and left her there.  She was treated at that hospital for five days before recovering enough to report the crime this week.  Bryant was arrested after a traffic stop in Union County, Tennessee.  Charges against him include domestic assault and aggravated kidnapping. Police say they are also searching for his girlfriend, who they say was an accomplice in the crime.
