A Garden City man was hit by a police stun gun and arrested early Thursday morning after allegedly chaining a woman to a bed and refusing to release her.

Carter Weyrauch, 30, was booked in the Ada County Jail on charges of felony second-degree kidnapping, misdemeanor domestic battery and two counts of battery of law enforcement. Authorities were called to an apartment in the 5600 block of Garrett Street at 5:45 a.m. on reports of a woman screaming for help.

Police entered the residence and found Weyrauch and a woman inside. The woman told police that the man had tied and chained her to a bed while she was sleeping. Evidence at the scene supported her allegations, police said.

Authorities attempted to arrest Weyrauch when he became combative and kicked officers. He was eventually detained by authorities; the officers sustained minor injuries and Weyrauch was treated at the scene.
