PINOLE -- A Vallejo man was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping his estranged wife Saturday after he reportedly forced her car into a multivehicle crash and dragged her, injured, from her vehicle, police said.

Jeremiah Snyder, 21, was arrested on kidnapping and drug charges after police discovered that he had chased his 24-year-old wife to Pinole from their Vallejo home and caused her to crash into two other cars before forcing her into his vehicle, Pinole police Cmdr. Pete Janke said. Officers arrived at the scene at Appian Way at Interstate 80 about 6:45 p.m. and witnesses told them a man had just sped away from the scene with an injured woman from one of the cars, Janke said. The extent of the woman's injuries, as well as the injuries of the people in the other cars, were not released by police.

Police found Snyder and his estranged spouse a short time later on San Pablo Avenue near Oak Ridge Drive, about a mile from the scene of the crash, Janke said. Snyder's car, which was not involved in the collision, was found a block away on Buena Vista Avenue.

Snyder was taken into custody and booked at County Jail in Martinez on kidnapping and drug charges, Janke said.
