On Dec. 6, Officer Chris Siglin was trying to take Derek James Carlson, 27, into custody, when Carlson made a break and then climbed into a car parked nearby.
Siglin attempted to pull Carlson out of the vehicle. But instead, Carlson managed to pull the officer inside and begin driving.
Carlson made it about a block before he was stopped and arrested.
Carlson is charged with kidnapping, assault with a non-firearm deadly weapon and two counts of resisting an officer. He also faces misdemeanor counts of drug and paraphernalia possession.
An arraignment hearing is scheduled for Wednesday in Judge Jacquelyn Duffy’s courtroom.
