Oklahoma County Sheriff's officials say a man wanted for kidnapping and other charges has been taken off the streets.

Ryan Rust, 29, appeared on Good Day OK's "Wheel of Justice" on October 23. He was wanted on a warrant for domestic abuse by strangulation, kidnapping, domestic abuse in the presence of a minor and interrupting an emergency call. The warrant was filed June 16, 2017. Court documents show Rust's wife asked him to leave their home in Edmond because of his abusive behavior.

"Apparently threw her up against the wall, hit her several times. Threatened to do bodily harm to her and then also when she tried to call 911, took the phone away," said Oklahoma County Sheriff's spokesperson Mark Opgrande.

Documents show he punched a hole in the wall next to her head. He then threw her down on the floor, covering her mouth and nose so she couldn't breathe. He then hit her twice in the right eye, as well as her mouth.

OCSO officials say Rust was brought into custody on Nov. 14.
