Kidnapping victim uses cell phone to alert police

Posted: Updated:

"I was at the club Charley O's," Hannah Dean explained what happened Sunday morning when she was allegedly abducted from the North Charleston club's parking lot. "I had 911 on the phone for about 20, 30 minutes, hiding my phone, giving them points of locations where I was at."

In the 911 recording obtained by News 2 you hear Dean ask the driver what road they're traveling, giving suggested locations like gas stations and convenience stores on the path of the direction they're headed. The man's voice in the recording makes sexual suggestions and when Dean denies, he orders her out of the car, which she says she refuses to do.

Deputies said the call allowed Dorchester dispatchers to locate the vehicle. They put Boyd behind bars and this morning he appeared before a judge for a charge of kidnapping. The judge noted Boyd's lengthy criminal background.

"Spousal sexual abuse, criminal domestic violence, simple assault," the judge read aloud.

"Yeah those charges were dismissed," Boyd said.

After the hearing, Boyd's current wife, Kimberly, said she just wants the truth.

"I'm not condoning what he did, nor do I support what he did. Do I think he kidnapped some chick at the club and was trying to rape her? I doubt that seriously. I do not think that occurred but I don't want to come off that I'm defending him because I'm not. I'm not defending his actions at all, I don't condone alcohol or drug abuse, nor do I condone adultery for that matter so I think he made a terrible mistake obviously and hopefully he'll be able to recover from this. Regardless of our relationship he does have five children and he is not a criminal," Kimberly Boyd told News 2.

Boyd remains in jail with a $25,000 dollar bond. His next court date is in October.

    A dispute over how to rewrite South Carolina's math and reading standards pits leaders of South Carolina's two education boards against Education Superintendent Mick Zais, three months before voters replace him. Zais has promised to use a new law to kill Common Core standards before he leaves office in January. The one-term Republican lacks the authority to do so. But he has influence over the review process. The law directs educator panels to review current math and reading standards, which ...
