Around 2 a.m. Friday morning, a Cedar Rapids woman was arrested after she was accused of drunk driving, and holding two passengers against their will. The 26-year-old was driving her minivan in Iowa City when she offered two men a ride.
The men obliged, and entered the vehicle, agreeing to pay a certain amount to the woman for supplying the transportation. But, an argument surrounding the method of payment broke out when the men were at their destination. The driver decided to abruptly leave the area, with the passengers still inside her car.
She was entering Interstate 80 in Iowa City when the men feared for their lives, and jumped from the moving vehicle. The driver continued traveling west until she was pulled over by police. She was subsequently arrested, and charged with intoxicated driving, and false imprisonment. Her bond was set at $6,000.
