BREMERTON, Wash. -- A Bremerton taxi driver who police say kept a woman captive in his cab for several hours Saturday against her will has been arrested.

Police say the victim, a 50-year-old Tacoma woman, became stranded in Bremerton Friday night when her car broke down. The driver of a "Can Ken" taxi stopped, offered to give the woman a ride and said he owned a tow truck, Bremerton police said.

The driver dropped the woman off at a Port Orchard motel and told her to call him in the morning.

The victim did call the driver back at 7 a.m. and was picked up in the same cab. She tells police she asked the driver to take him to the Jeep dealership in Bremerton, but instead the driver picked up several fares. And when she protested, he yelled "my stuff first!" police said.

Police say the woman was kept inside the cab for several hours, even taken to a golf course several miles away so the driver could "hit golf balls."

Later Saturday, the woman was finally taken to the Jeep dealership, where staff noted the woman appeared terrified. They told the driver to leave and called 911.

She later told detectives she felt threatened and asked to be let out several times.

Police found the driver a short time later in his cab and arrested him for investigation of unlawful imprisonment. He told officers he "was training her to be a taxi driver," and admitted she asked to be let out "a couple of times," police said.

The suspect, identified as Kenneth Marshall Haines, was jailed but has since been released on $25,000 bail and his taxi operator's certificate was revoked. His taxi cab has also been impounded.
