Cops: Kidnapping suspect arrested during traffic stop after driving 100 mph

A convicted sex offender accused of kidnapping a former girlfriend from a market in Georgia was arrested in Tennessee for driving more than 100 mph, authorities said.

A Williamson County sheriff’s deputy arrested Terry James Lee, 50, of Quitman, a day after the alleged kidnapping, according to the office’s Facebook page.

The woman, who had previously been in a romantic relationship with Lee, had obvious injuries that were consistent with a struggle, the sheriff’s office said. 

Lee has been charged with aggravated kidnapping, driving on a revoked license, speeding and being a habitual motor vehicle offender.

He remains in the Williamson County Detention Center. His first court appearance is scheduled for Wednesday.
