Police say it was a case of macho bravado that led to a suspected Bakersfield drug dealer´s arrest. Police say 26 year old Samuel Padilla is charged with drug possession and kidnapping after he allegedly drove off with a woman who owes him 16-hundred dollars from a methamphetamine deal last year. Authorities say the victim got into his car and Padilla started hitting her and threatened to kill her if she didn´t pay back the money. Police say the woman called the authorities and arranged to meet Padilla with her boyfriend. When Padilla showed up to duke it out with the woman´s boyfriend, he was arrested.
