A Red Creek man has been charged with kidnapping, assault, aggravated criminal contempt and aggravated family offense.

Sheriff’s deputies say 56-year-old Keith Butler forced his ex-girlfriend into a vehicle during a domestic dispute at a bar in Sodus. Investigators say Butler drove her around on back roads throughout Wayne County and ultimately ended up on River Road in Galen where he threatened to kill her and throw her into the river.

Deputies say Butler violated a stay away order of protection and has been previously convicted for other family offenses within the past five years.

Butler was arraigned and remanded to the Wayne County Jail without bail.
