Former Russell County man indicted on kidnapping, strangulation charges

A former Russell County man was arrested Thursday in Pulaski County after being indicted on charges that include kidnapping and strangulation.

According to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office, 48-year-old Sean Campbell, now of Science Hill, was arrested after being indicted on charges of kidnapping, strangulation, and being a persistent felony offender.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said the charges stem from an incident in November, in which Campbell’s wife, Angela, alleged that he forced her into his vehicle near their home and took her to a nearby motel where he allegedly pushed her against a wall and strangled her.

Another man at the motel, who at the time worked for Campbell, was able to intervene and Angela was able to escape and hide in a public area of the motel until a family member came to pick her up. She was taken to Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital and treated for injuries sustained during the attack.

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office spotted Campbell on Thursday and arrested him on the indictment warrant. He was lodged in the Pulaski County Detention Center and held on a $50,000 bond.
