CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – A Clarksville man wanted on 27 warrants, including one in connection with the beating of a man over rent money, was taken into custody on Wednesday afternoon.
An officer responded to a 911 call in the 900 block of Riverside Drive in which a woman claimed she recognized a man whose photo she had seen on the news. The officer recognized the man as 23-year-old Michael Gray, who police said was one of four men who attacked a man last Friday on Tandy Drive.
When Gray was taken into custody, police said they found a revolver and marijuana in his possession. Gray was served with a total of 27 warrants, including aggravated assault, evading arrest, DUI, burglary, theft, disorderly conduct, domestic assault, drug possession, unlawful possession of a weapon, and varied traffic offenses.
Gray was held on $202,291 bond.
The other man wanted in the attack on a man last week, Gregory Robinson, remained at large.
Police said Robinson walked into an unlocked apartment on Tandy Drive Friday afternoon. Once inside, police said he showed a gun and demanded money for overdue rent. He claimed to be a Blood gang member and then attacked the man, punching and hitting him with a gun and threatening to kill the man if he didn't get the money.
Robinson left but then came back with three other men, including Gray. Police said the entire group joined in the attack, leaving the renter seriously injured.
The man who was attacked was visiting the resident of the apartment. According to police, he had sub-leased an apartment from Robinson.
Officers are still trying to identify the other two people involved.
