Deputies were tipped off to Gray’s location after someone called 911 and reported a suspicious male walking in the area of Gladding and Wise Roads, according to a sheriff’s office statement.
A deputy went to the scene and found Gray, who initially complied with the deputy, but as a sheriff’s department K-9, Ronin, and his handler arrived to assist with the arrest, Gray allegedly took off, jumped over a fence, and ran into a large field.
