NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Arrest warrants have been issued for three bounty hunters for assault and failure to follow state laws regarding bounty hunting procedures.

Andrew Scott Giarratano, 29, Charles Victor Mullins, 33, and Jason Glendale Woosley, 36, went to a home in the 2000 block of River Road on November 16, 2018 to take two individuals into custody.

They bounty hunters, who were all working for Grumpy's Bail Bonds, attempted to make forced entry into the home around 12:45 a.m. by kicking the front door. Upon hearing the commotion, the victim asked who the men were, to which they replied they were bounty hunters. The victim then told them to wait while he put his dog away.

When the victim returned, the bounty hunters kicked the front door in, striking the man in the forehead. This injury required the victim to need more than a dozen stitches.

Once the bounty hunters arrived at the Montgomery County Jail to turn the two individuals over to police, they did not have copies of the certified bond and they did not have a pocket card certifying they had recieved the proper training for bounty hunters that is required by state law.

Bond for the three men is set at $5,000 each.

Anyone with information on their location is asked to call 911 or Investigator Geoff Blanchard at 931-648-0611 ext. 13408.
