Lawson was charged after he led law enforcement officers on a chase that started in Leitchfield and ended in a two-hour standoff in McDaniels.
Lawson reportedly pulled a gun at the Leitchfield Police Station and forced Clements and a child into his car and drove away. The couple was at the station to exchange custody of the child when the abduction occurred, police said.
