The nephew of one of the most famous athletes in the entire world was just kidnapped. According to reports, the nephew of Alex Rodriguez was just kidnapped while trying to sell a luxury car.

"Alex Rodriguez’s nephew was kidnapped and held for ransom in a New York City hotel early Thursday after a deal involving two people and a $600,000 Lamborghini went bad," reported Fox News.

Norberto Susini, Alex's nephew, was taken to a hotel and held against his will. Police were called to the scene and the kidnappers were taken into custody in the early morning hours of Thursday.

The kidnappers reportedly "drove Susini to the Marriott Marquis, but then demanded Susini return a $35,000 deposit. The men then allegedly held Susini against his will in the hotel room. Police said the pair then called Susini’s business partners and demanded a ransom and the car in return for the baseball player. The business partners called police instead," The New York Post reported.

At this time, Alex Rodriguez has yet to address the situation. The kidnappers are charged with unlawful imprisonment and one is charged with kidnapping.
