By Joy Batt

COLUMBIA, SC (WOLO)--A Rock Hill man is behind bars tonight accused of kidnapping his own mother.

64 year old Besty Peake claims her son, 34 year old Justin Peake, kidnapped her to get money in order to pay off a $20 drug debt.

Authorities say Peake picked his mom up from work but refused to let her out of the car until she forked over the cash.

Police say the son held his mother captive for 2 hours.
