LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jeffersonville man suspected of kidnapping a Taylorsville woman is in custody. 

Michael Grubb was arrested early Tuesday morning according to Kentucky State Police. He was wanted on charges of animal cruelty, arson, kidnapping, robbery and wanton endangerment.

Earlier this month, WDRB News reported that Grubb is a suspect in a case where he allegedly threw two dogs into a fire outside of a home in Spencer County.

Five days after that, Grubb is accused of kidnapping a Spencer County man at gunpoint and threatening to kill him before setting him free.

"Warrants were taken out for all of the those charges, and we considered those warrants to be high-risk warrants, so we considered him to be a danger to the public," said Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump.

Stump says law enforcement searched for Grubb Monday night in the Mt. Washington area. Around 3 a.m. Tuesday, Grubb turned himself in to police at the Spencer County Sheriff's Office. 

The woman who was with Grubb was unharmed, the sheriff said. 

"We were worried about citizens getting hurt," Stump said. "You never know what's going to happen when you've got a person facing this serious of charges. Sometimes they don't always think rational."
