An off-duty Central Texas law officer has been accused of handcuffing and abducting a woman.

Brazos County Deputy Constable Augustin Rubio has been charged with kidnapping. Jail records Thursday did not list an attorney for Rubio, who held on $10,000 bond.

College Station police Officer Rhonda Seaton told The Associated Press that she doesn't know if the woman is a college student or knows Rubio, who was arrested Wednesday night. He's now on administrative leave.

Constable Donald Lamp says all of his deputies worked off-duty security jobs last weekend at fraternity and sorority parties.

Police say Rubio early Sunday approached the woman at an intersection, handcuffed her and put her in his patrol vehicle. The woman, who has not been charged, says she awoke hours later in a parking lot.
