SALT LAKE COUNTY -- Salt Lake County prosecutors have filed charges against a man who they say used a gun to demand a ride.

They say John Rhodes walked up to a man filling his car with gasoline at a Salt Lake City Chevron station May 19 and asked him for a ride. When the man refused, Rhodes allegedly showed him a handgun, forced him into the car and they drove to Sandy.

Prosecutors say Rhodes ordered the driver to stop the car at an intersection, where Rhodes jumped out. Police found him a short time later in Midvale.

He now faces charges for aggravated kidnapping and violating probation.
