Friends of the ex-girlfriend told investigators they witnessed Rodriguez force her into the vehicle and then drove her to his Kings Beach home, according to shieriff’s office reports. The witnesses reportedly pounded on the door for 10 minutes before Rodriguez released the her.

Her friends drove her to Tahoe Women’s Services where they then notified the Placer County Sheriff’s Department.

The victim was not physically injured, but mostly endured emotional trauma, said Placer County sheriff’s Lt. John Addoms.

Deputies located Rodriguez at his brother’s home in Kings Beach and arrested him without incident, according to reports.

Rodriguez faces felony charges of kidnapping and false imprisonment, as well as a misdemeanor battery charge, said Addoms.

He is currently in custody at the Placer County Jail in Auburn with a $200,000 bail.

His arraignment is scheduled for Sept. 14 at 1 p.m. at the Placer County Jail courtroom.
