Goodman woman charged with kidnapping after blocking driveway so Amazon delivery man can't leave

The McDonald County Prosecuting Attorney's office filed a misdemeanor kidnapping charge against a Goodman woman after she allegedly blocked a driveway so an Amazon delivery driver was unable to leave after attempting to deliver a package November 16.

According to the probable cause statement, Cora Virginia Duncan (DOB 1983) told the McDonald County deputy sheriff, the Amazon Prime driver pulled up into her yard but would not get out of his vehicle because of her dogs.

I observed approximately 3-4 big dogs in her driveway that did come down barking and running in our direction. At first impression they did appear to be aggressive but after approaching they were friendly.

Mrs. Duncan advised the Amazon driver called her and told her to come outside. Mrs. Duncan {said} the Amazon driver threw the package at her head and then she threw it back and {he} backed up and went to the driveway across the street.

The Amazon driver told the deputy sheriff it was Amazon's policy not to get out of the vehicle or deliver the packages if dogs were aggressive and that he called her to tell her to get the dogs so he could deliver the package or come out to the vehicle and get the package herself.

The driver said he handed the package to Duncan and she threw it back at him "so he rolled up the window and started to back out of the driveway, then Mrs. Duncan started to punch the window and the mirror."

He backed into the driveway across the street, according to the probable cause affidavit. Mrs. Duncan followed him and blocked him so he could not leave the driveway

Sounds like she is a complete nut case. A mental evaluation should be done. Also, the driver should sue her. She needs to contain her animals and learn to act in a civil manner. Hopefully Amazon will stop all future deliveries to her.
