Authorities said Matthew Juan Morrison, of 1551 Townhome Road, was traveling along Interstate 40 with a 26-year-old female when he intentionally drove from a travel lane into a concrete barrier.

Morrison was charged with first degree kidnapping, assault, possession of a fire arm and animal cruelty.
