Kratzer was the driver of the SUV, while Coleman was the alleged kidnapping victim, the post said. Coleman turned herself in Friday, while Kratzer turned himself in Monday, sheriff’s office spokesman Doug Rainwater said.
“If you want to create a social media following, I would strong(ly) dissuade you from this stupidity,” Sheriff Ron Freeman said in the Facebook post. “Good armed citizens might have been justified in using force to stop what they legitimately believed was a kidnapping. Committing a criminal act for social media likes will get you arrested in Forsyth County, that’s not the kind of attention most people want to have.”
In addition to his charges, Kratzer also faces a count of felony probation violation, which stems from an April 2018 incident where he damaged five vehicles by throwing objects out of the window of his vehicle at passing cars, Rainwater said.
He pleaded guilty to six counts of criminal damage to property and was sentenced to nine years of probation and 200 hours of community service.
