Roger Ehler, 56, will appear in Clearwater County Second District Court on December 4th for the alleged kidnapping of a six-year-old and two men after he forced the three into a minivan and demanded a ride to Orofino. After a brief standoff, the minivan was intercepted by law enforcement and Ehler was taken into custody and transported to the Clearwater County Jail where Ehler is being held on a $600,000 bond.
Ehler faces three counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of aggravated battery, one count of injury to a child and one count of possession of a controlled substance methamphetamine, all of which are felonies.
Ehler also faces three misdemeanor counts for exhibiting a deadly weapon, resisting or obstructing officers and disturbing the peace.
He'll appear before Judge Michael Griffen for his preliminary hearing Tuesday December 4th at 1 p.m.
