Legal Question in Criminal Law in Virginia


My fiancÚ's ex-husband just pulled up in front of our driveway and would not allow us to leave. We called the police and they wrote him a minor traffic ticket for blocking the driveway. They said they couldn't arrest him for trespassing since they did not witness him doing so, although he admitted to it and admitted to being told not to come on our property. My question is that when someone keeps you against your will by intimidation and blocking us in, doesn't this break some sort of major law like kidnapping or some other code? I live in Virginia and am tired of being harassed by him. Thank you for your time!

No, not under the particular facts you've described as to what

apparently actually occurred in this situation (in my opinion).
