Take an employee/coworker away from their work to attend a meeting without notice, usually by coercion and/or authority, sometimes with a promise of food (which will not materialize or fall far short of such promises), often specifically to "throw them under the bus" i.e. make the person a scapegoat.
I was just worknapped by my boss' boss for a two-hour meeting I didn't know about, but at least he said we'd have lunch. Then near the end, he said "well, food will be here in 20, we should probably switch topics to *whatever* and dismiss *names, including mine*. Thanks for your help."
