CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A Ravenel woman who called 911 from the trunk of her own car said the suspect forced her into the trunk then drove off Tuesday morning.

Brandy Scott, 25, was able to call 911 from inside her trunk and Charleston County sheriff's deputies were able to locate and stop the vehicle, rescuing Scott from a dangerous situation.

"I did not know what was going to happen," Scott said.

According to the nearly 20-minute long 911 recording released by the Charleston County Sheriff's Office, the woman provided dispatchers with enough information on her car and her location to give deputies a chance to find her alleged abductor.

Scott says Jeremiah Brown drove the vehicle down Savannah Highway heading for West Ashley while she was on the phone with 911 dispatch, still inside the trunk.

According to Scott, while she was on the phone with 911 dispatch, Brown stopped the car and opened the trunk. At that time, Scott says they got into an altercation, which became heated.

"He was upset because I called the police and he stuck his finger way down my throat and he threatened to slash my tires if I did not give him a ride," Scott said.

During Brown's bond hearing he gave his version of what happened.

"I asked the victim, 'what are you doing in the truck.' So, she was in the truck willfully because she was trying to keep me from getting the $170," Brown told a judge Tuesday night.

Scott said that soon after Brown got back into the vehicle following the argument, Charleston County sheriff's deputies pulled the car over in the Smokers Express parking lot and arrested the suspect.

Brown's bond was set at $200,000 for criminal domestic violence and kidnapping.
