Man charged with kidnapping Kingsport children

Christopher Shawn Wilson

KINGSPORT — A man has been arrested for reportedly taking his girlfriend's children during a weekend domestic dispute, forcing Kingsport police to contact him several times before the children were located.

An affidavit filed in Kingsport court says Christpher Shawn Wilson, 23, of 1309 Mimosa Drive, was arrested late Sunday night. Earlier in the day Kingsport police were called by a resident of Model City Apartments, 1000 Stonegate Road. 

The woman identified Wilson as her boyfriend, saying a verbal argument between the pair turned physical and he grabbed her around the throat and choked her. He's also alleged to have slammed her head against a wall and knocked her to the ground.
