(CBS DETROIT) -- A man who police say assaulted his ex-wife and attempted to kidnap her is now facing criminal charges.
Carl Emerson Travis, 51, of Grosse Pointe, is charged with unlawful imprisonment, second-degree fleeing and eluding, domestic violence, reckless driving and two counts of assaulting/resisting/obstructing an officer.
Travis was arraigned on Monday in 34th District Court and given a $500,000/10% bond with a GPS tether.
Van Buren Township police were called to the 48400 block of Denton Road for a "reported kidnapping in progress." Police arriving at the scene spotted a man, later identified as Travis, assaulting the woman.
Travis fled when attempted to intervene.
Prosecutors say fled as officers attempted a traffic stop, resulting in a police chase on Interstate 94. He was arrested after crashing his car at the intersection of Trumbull Street and East I-94 Service Drive.
A probable cause conference is scheduled for Aug. 17.
