A 22-year-old man from Washington state may have had romantic intentions when he ran off with his girlfriend to get married but he went about things the wrong way when he decided to kidnap her. With their two-year-old daughter in tow, they set off for – where else? – Las Vegas, to tie the knot. The only minor problem was that the man’s girlfriend wasn’t quite ready to take that step.
