An employee was arrested on a charge of kidnapping after kidnapping his boss and beating him because the employer refused to pay another employee several thousand dollars in back wages, police in Canada said.

Now, 30-year-old Corey Eugene Galandy of Edmonton, has been sentenced to serve three years in prison after pleading guilty to kidnapping, robbery and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Galandy has also been banned from driving for one year.

According to the police investigation, Galandy met up with his boss Daniel Gillespie in a 7-Eleven parking lot, where he demanded $50 in back wages.

Gillespie paid him. Galandy then took his boss to another employee’s house. Galandy and the other worker threatened Gillespie, and demanded his cellphone and several thousand dollars.

When he refused to hand over the cash, Galandy punched Gillespie four times in the head. When Gillespie tried to escape, Galandy pushed him to the ground and hit him several more times.

Galandy then used his boss’ ATM card to withdraw $400. At that point, Galandy decided that he wanted to party with his boss.

He bought alcohol and cigarettes before heading to a strip club. At the club, the two men became very drunk. Eventually, the manager of the club called the police to remove the two men because they were too drunk.

That is when Gillespie told the officers that he was kidnapped by his employee.
