Teen Held in Kidnapping of Father

FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 19-year-old kidnapped his father with a machete in Fairhope and forced him to drive to a Daphne bank to withdraw money.

Daphne police say Zachary Barber kidnapped his adoptive father on Wednesday.

Police say that once they arrived at the bank, the father tried to escape, ran into the bank and told the teller to lock the door.

Officers say Barber drove away but ended up crashing.

Barber remains in the Baldwin County Jail.
