LAKEWOOD – A man is facing serious charges after he refused to let a woman out of his car last week.

According to authorities, 65-year-old Rabbi Shmuel Rennert of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was taken into custody and charged with harassment, false imprisonment and criminal restraint after the July 31 incident.

It is not clear as to who the woman was or why she was in the car with him, but according to a phone tip to Jersey Shore Online, she was dropped off at her home safe and sound.

Police said he drove her around in his car but no other details were made public.

Rennert was taken to the Ocean County Jail.

A search of the website jailbase.com showed Rennert was booked at the Milwaukee County Jail back in June of 2017 but the reason wasn’t listed.
