The ex-wife of country music star Garth Brooks was kidnapped at gunpoint by a man who worked on her farm
Sandy Brooks, the former wife of country superstar Garth Brooks, was briefly kidnapped by a worker on her rural Oklahoma farm, but safe.
Revealing on the incident, Barry Lamb, under-sheriff of Rogers County explained that Brooks had allowed a bail bondsman onto her property Monday after finding out one of her employees, Quintine Cornelius Harper was wanted on an outstanding warrant.
Unfortunately, Harper immediately drew a gun and forced Brooks to drive him several miles before she finally stopped the car and ran into a convenience store.
Harper was then on the next day arrested and charged with kidnapping and weapons offenses.
