A Rogers County man will go to trial to face kidnapping, burglary, and many other charges.

Garrett Daniel Estes, 34, has been charged with multiple felonies over the years, the latest happening earlier this year. Estes was arrested in March after officers say he broke into a home in Catoosa, held three people hostage at knifepoint.

Officers say Estes then kidnapped one of the hostages and led police on a chase throughout Tulsa. Oklahoma Highway Patrol was eventually able to bring the car to a stop near 71st and Riverside without anyone getting hurt.  They say Estes then refused to get out of the car forcing them to use a taser. 

The victim, Amber Hayes, spoke about the events in court on Wednesday describing the events as terrifying. She says she woke up to someone screaming, ran into her daughter's room, and realized someone was in her home. 

She described the next few hours of being held hostage and eventually being forced into her own car and driven by Estes as he led troopers and police on a chase from Catoosa to South Tulsa.

The chase ended with a crash on the 71st Street Bridge. Hayes wasn't injured.
