    DULUTH, Ga. - Duluth police now have the father of two sons in custody hours after they said he illegally abducted them and rammed a DFCS worker's car as he tried to get away.
     
     John Blue, 55, surrendered to Norcross police Thursday evening, but not before police said he drove his sons to their grandmother's home in Greenville, South Carolina.  Police report that 14-year old Jaquez Blue and 10-year old Zailan Blue are safe and sound.
     
    Police said a DFCS worker went to Blue's condo Thursday morning to serve a court order taking the two boys into state custody.  When Blue saw her, police said he loaded the boys into his minivan.  According to police, the DFCS worker attempted to block him in, but he rammed her car several times before driving away.  That incident prompted a statewide Levi's Call.
     
    Channel Two Action News was there as Duluth Police walked Blue into their headquarters building.  As he walked in handcuffs into the building, he contended the DFCS worker never identified herself and caused the incident.
     
    "She didn't identify herself," Blue said.  "And she crashed my car."
     
    He also stated his kids were never in any danger.
     
    "My kids are always OK," said Blue.  "You meet anybody that knows me knows my kids never worry about nothing."
