Police say a 12-year-old Florida boy jumped from a moving vehicle to get away from a man after accepting a ride home from school with him.

A Boynton Beach police spokeswoman said witnesses followed the white truck after seeing the boy jump out, eventually blocking it and detaining the driver until police arrived.

Timothy Miller, 26, is charged with kidnapping, child neglect and resisting arrest.

The boy had abrasions on his forehead, arms and legs. He told investigators he was walking home from a school bus stop when Miller offered a ride. He said Miller then asked him for drugs and looked at him strangely. He opened the door and jumped out.

Dont think those charges will stick, sadly. Theres no law against giving people rides home from school. As well as no laws against looking at people strangely. He might be convicted of attempted unlawful dealing with a child because of the asking for drugs but even thats only a misdemeanor.
Florida kidnapping statute
"Confinement of a child under the age of 13 is against her or his will within the meaning of this subsection if such confinement is without the consent of her or his parent or legal guardian"
Since the kid jumped from a moving car, he clearly felt it was a kidnapping attempt and that he wouldn't be allowed to exit the vehicle.
Asking the kid for drugs will seriously hamper his efforts to say he didn't intend to commit any crime. So will resisting arrest.
