KNOX COUNTY, TN (WAVE) -  A man said he was being held hostage to get ransom money…from his mom!

According to the Knox County Sheriff's Office, Zachery Logsdon, 25, sent his mother text messages claiming his dealer was going to kill him if he didn't get $200. Mom was suspicious though and said her son pulled a similar stunt in the past to get money for drugs.

She called 911 and police arranged a drop-off spot for the money. When Logsdon showed up, police chased him and arrested him.
