CHICAGO (CBS) – A Gold Coast psychiatrist was arrested at O’Hare International Airport Wednesday, after she allegedly took her two children across state lines without the consent of their father.

Dr. Zabrin Inan, 43, of the 1000 block of North Lake Shore Drive, was charged with felony child abduction and violating a domestic order of protection, police said. She was also wanted on two warrants.

Police said Inan allegedly took her two children out of the state without their father’s consent from Nov. 6, 2010 to Mar. 2, 2011. She was arrested at 5:10 a.m. Wednesday at O’Hare Airport and is scheduled to appear in bond court later Thursday.

Police said she has no criminal history and the warrants were issued because she missed several court dates regarding the children.

In December 2010, the children’s father filed a police report that said he applied for an order of protection granting him temporary custody for their two children and on Nov. 6, 2010, Inan texted him, saying that she was leaving the state and moving to California, police said.

The father made an arrangement to fly out to California and retrieve the children, and when he arrived at Inan’s home he found that she and her 47-year-old live-in boyfriend had moved to an unidentified location with the kids, according to police.

According to her Web site, Inan is psychiatrist whose office is located at 125 S. Wacker Dr. She is an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology board-certified psychiatrist who specializes in the treatment of attention deficit disorders, mood disorders/depression, anxiety disorders, stress disorders and eating disorders in children, adolescents and adults, according to the site.
