Tulsa Man Arrested For Kidnapping: "It Was A Love Story"

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

A man is in the Tulsa County jail on several complaints including kidnapping and resisting arrest after police say he held his ex-girlfriend in a car and threatened to kill her daughter Tuesday evening.

Tommy Stout, 66, denied that anything happened and says they are still in love with each other.

Police say Stout's ex-girlfriend and her adult daughter met him at Pine and Yale to give him his belongings back. Instead, police say he forced the daughter out of her car, held her mother against her will and told her to drive him to west Tulsa.

Police said he threatened to kill her daughter and her ex-husband, if her mother didn't do as he said.

News On 6 talked with Stout as he sat in the back of a police car and he said officers are not clear on what happened.

"They had a crime, they thought, but it was a love story. They were confused. They've done that before," said Tommy Stout.
