CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A grand jury will decide whether to charge the son of Clarksville District Attorney General John Carney Jr. with kidnapping and robbery.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports John Carney III and three co-defendants were in court for a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

Police say the men invaded an apartment and held a Fort Campbell soldier against his will, taking a safe from his home.

A retired prosecutor from Carol County is serving as the special prosecutor pro-tem in the case.

District Attorney John Carney Jr. has blamed prescription drug abuse for his son's arrest. He was in court on Wednesday with supporters.

The son is being held without bond.
