Chattanooga man charged with false imprisonment

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - A large quantity of beer and a good deed lead to a false imprisonment charge in Chattanooga.
Just after midnight, a woman says she offered a man, 33-year old Steven Ponikarski, a ride from the Rossville Boulevard Mapco Mart to the Hamilton Inn, next door. He was a friend of her ex and was trying to transport a lot of beer.  
After some heavy drinking, the victim says he refused to let her leave, forcibly kissed her, then hit her in the mouth before she was able to get out.  
Ponikarski's bond was set at 10-thousand dollars.
