Graceville man arrested on firearm charge
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of Graceville resident Troy Anthony Bryant, 28, early Tuesday on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm in connection with an alleged incident of last November.
In a press release this week, authorities said a warrant was issued for his arrest after several unsuccessful attempts to get his side of the story regarding allegations that he armed himself with a firearm and threatened to shoot his girlfriend’s father during a heated argument on Nov. 11, 2020, at a location off Chapman Lane near Graceville.
A complaint was ultimately forwarded by the sheriff’s office to the State Attorney’s Office for review, at the request of the victim. A warrant was issued and Bryant was taken into custody by officers with the JCSO Uniform Patrol Division and the agency’s Fugitive Apprehension Division, officials said.
Bryant was taken to the Jackson County jail to await first appearance on the charge listed above.
