CHATTANOOGA, Tennessee (WRCB) — Federal investigators say a Tennessee car salesman kidnapped a customer, stole his money, and forced him to smoke crack while being held hostage.

Court documents state Daniel Bryant made the victim give him nearly $200,000 and threatened to kill him.

The details spelled out in the 7-page court document show the victim told police he recently bought a truck from Mountain View Chevrolet in Chattanooga after receiving a substantial financial settlement from a severe on-the-job injury that left him without a leg and reliant on a wheelchair.

He brought the truck back on April 1st to be serviced. The victim told investigators Bryant, who was a salesman, offered to give him a ride home.

Once inside Bryant’s vehicle, the victim said Bryant took him to a bank and threatened to kill him and his family if he didn’t take out money.
