Man arrested after woman tied up in Madison County apartment for hours

A man is arrested after police in Madison County say he tied up his girlfriend, and refused to let her leave their apartment.

It happened on Jason Drive. Police responded to the area on an unrelated matter, and say a female approached them and said Michael Brainard, 23, had tied her up the previous evening.

The victim told police she and Brainard got into an argument in which she was physically assaulted, and Brainard tied her arms to a shower rod in their apartment. She said he tied her feet up as well, and then left for work around 10 p.m.

We're told a roommate got to the home around 2:30 a.m. and let the victim go.

Brainard was interviewed by police and charged with 4th degree assault, and unlawful imprisonment 1st degree. He is listed in the Madison County Detention Center.
