$1M bond in Grandview kidnapping incident


MADISON — A Florida man arrested here last week still remains in police custody facing domestic violence and traffic charges and a $1 million bond, officials said. 

Madison Police have Keith L. Green, 25, of Lauderhill, Florida, in custody facing domestic violence charges and a number of traffic violations following an incident on Grandview Boulevard on the evening of Feb. 11.

Madison Police Capt. Kevin Newman said that on Feb. 11, at approximately 6:53 p.m., officers of MPD responded to the parking lot of the Lowe’s  on Grandview Boulevard for a report of a domestic disturbance in progress.

As officers arrived on the scene, they learned that a male and female subject had exited a vehicle in the parking lot and were arguing. During the argument, the male subject, who would later be identified as Green, allegedly struck the female several times.

Green then entered the vehicle, which belonged to the female, and fled the scene with the female subject’s 1-year-old child in the backseat.

As he exited the parking lot in the vehicle and proceeded to the intersection of Grandview Boulevard and Mississippi 463, he disregarded the traffic light and entered the intersection colliding with another vehicle, officials said. At this time officers were arriving at the crash location where they took the male subject into custody and administered aid to the child and others involved in the crash.

The child was transported to the Blair E. Batson Hospital for Children with non-life-threatening injuries.

There were no other injuries as a result of the crash. The female victim was treated for minor injuries received during the incident as well.

Green was still housed in the Madison County Jail on Wednesday facing simple domestic violence charges and also faces charges on numerous traffic violations, including failure to stop, driving with a suspended license and two charges of disobedience of a traffic signal.

Newman said that additional charges of kidnapping and unauthorized taking/possession of a motor vehicle are pending. 

Newman said Green’s initial appearance in the Madison Municipal Court was Friday, Feb. 12. His charges are simple domestic violence, auto theft, kidnapping, felony fleeing and several traffic violations. His bond was set by the judge as follows: 

•Kidnapping: $1,000,000

•Auto Theft & Felony Fleeing: $50,000

•Simple Domestic Violence & Traffic Violations: $6,000
