Father arrested for allegedly kidnapping son

Posted: Updated:

Authorities arrested a father accused of kidnapping his own son on Thursday.

Officials issued a Levi's Call on Thursday morning after they suspected that Christopher Steven Fields had abducted 5-year-old Lealand Hill.

A court had just awarded Jill Abercrombie custody of her two grandsons on Wednesday. Police say that Fields allegedly stole Abercrombie's car and took the child from his grandmother's house on Wednesday night.

Just before 9:45 a.m. on Thursday, Carrollton deputies halted the stolen vehicle and apprehended Fields.

The kindergartner was returned to his grandmother.

Fields faces kidnapping and theft by taking charges.
