    Police arrested a West Palm Beach man after he allegedly kidnapped a 12-year-old boy who was walking home from his Boynton Beach school.

    Police told NBC affiliate WPTV-TV that officers saw a truck driving erratically after getting 911 calls of the incident before a child jumped out of the vehicle. Witnesses continued to follow the truck onto I-95, where they blocked it in until police arrived and arrested 26-year-old Timothy Miller.

    Investigators say the victim, who was not seriously hurt, told them that Miller approached him after getting off the school bus and said he gave kids free rides all the time. Shortly after, the child said Miller began acting different and asked him if he had any drugs.

    Miller later told police he thought the child was an older teenager and was attempting to buy drugs. He was charged with kidnapping a child under 13 years of age, child neglect and resisting arrest with violence.
