An Anderson man has been arrested on multiple charges, according to deputies.

Glen Thomas Beard Hightower was driving down Midway Road and Stringer Road in Belton on Sunday and was preventing his passenger from getting out of his truck.

Deputies say that Hightower was grabbing the victim by her hair and threatening to shoot her. He also fired a shot out of the passenger-side window.

A lady who happened to be following Hightower, saw the altercation, and said that the passenger door was open and that items were falling out of the truck and that the truck was swerving all over the road.

Hightower eventually stopped and the passenger quickly exited. The woman who had been following them picked up the victim and drove her to the Sheriff's Office.

Hightower was arrested without incident on Monday and has been charged with first degree assault and battery, kidnapping and possession of a weapon during a violent crime. A hold was also placed on him for unlawful carry of a firearm.
