Gray denied being involved in an argument or fight with anyone prior to the deputies arrival. Deputies then went to speak with the victim.

The victim said he got up around 4 a.m. to get ready for work and was approached by Gray asking the victim if Gray had a call for service with the tire service business, according to the victim’s written statement.

Court documents go on to state the victim did not have an explanation for why Gray was at his residence in the 3100 block of Kincall Road. The victim said he told Gray he would have to call and find out if Gray had a call for service because he did not know.

The victim said he then left his home in his vehicle and Gray followed him. Gray then ran his truck into the victim’s vehicle on the driver’s side, according to court documents. The driver said Gray then got out of the vehicle and began yelling at the victim.

The victim told deputies the argument started over the victim’s girlfriend, who Gray may have been having a relationship with. The victim claims he was in fear that Gray would try and continue to hurt him so he called 911.

Following the investigation, Gray was read his Miranda Warning and placed into custody. He was booked into the Wichita Co. Jail and charged with Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Controlled Substance after his car was impounded and 1.2 grams of methamphetamine was found inside.

At the time this story was published, Gray remained behind bars with a combined $18,000 bond.
