Man arrested for kidnapping car salesman during test drive

Posted:

JANESVILLE (WKOW) -- Wisconsin State Patrol pulled over a man near Edgerton on Friday for a lot more than speeding.

Aleh Kot, 32, of Massachusetts, allegedly kidnapped a car salesman during a test drive and drove the vehicle more than 1,000 miles.

Kot is expected to be extradited back to Massachusetts to face charges of kidnapping, larceny of a motor vehicle and unarmed robbery.

Authorities say the kidnapping started on Thursday afternoon at a Honda dealership.  Kot and the salesmen went on a test drive but Kot refused to turn around, according to police.

The salesman was able to get out of the car when it slowed at a tollbooth near the Massachusetts state line.
