COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. – The man accused of kidnapping a 15-year old girl last week is now in the Columbia County Detention Center.

37-year-old Jason Johnson was arrested over the weekend in Tennessee.

He was originally wanted on kidnapping charges, as well as child molestation charges, after police say he ran off with 15-year-old Calah Waskow, last week.

Waskow’s attorney says the two had been involved in a relationship since the summer.
