KNOXVILLE (AP) — Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray is mentioned in police incident reports about two car vandalisms at a Knoxville apartment complex.
Knoxville Police Depart-ment spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Wednesday afternoon that no charges will be filed on the initial incident at the Landing Riverfront Apartments after Bray, 20, offered to pay Bradi Hudson, the first victim, for damages to her car.
“Bray reached out to her and apologized and is going to take care of the damage to the vehicle,” DeBusk said. “Because of that, she no longer wished to pursue charges.”
Hudson was scheduled to meet with a detective Wednesday, according to DeBusk, but before then she informed Knoxville police of her conversation with Bray.
DeBusk said the second vandalism incident is still under investigation.
According to the first incident report filed Sunday, when Hudson went to her car Saturday morning she noticed it had dents on the roof and a cracked windshield.
A note on the car window had a name and phone number and read “I know what happened to your car.”
After calling the number, she was told “there had been males drinking and throwing beer bottles and golf balls at her vehicle” the previous night, the report states.
In the other incident, Kirstie Allen discovered her front windshield had been “completely smashed” on Monday, the second incident report states. She told police she returned to her apartment around 1:10 p.m. and ate lunch. Approximately 30 minutes later, she went outside and noticed the damage to her vehicle.
Allen told police that Bray and his roommate, Michael Grandinetti, had thrown beer bottles off a balcony and onto vehicles in the parking lot.
The report quotes her as saying an office manager for the complex told her Bray and Grandinetti had been “served with an eviction notice just prior to her arriving home.”
Bray completed 147-of-247 passes for 1,983 yards and 17 touchdowns with six interceptions in seven starts last season.
He missed five games with a fractured right thumb.
In his two-year collegiate career, Bray has completed 272-of-471 passes for 3,832 yards and 35 TDs with 16 interceptions.
Coming into the 2012 season, he has been named to the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback of the Year watch list as well as watch lists for both the Manning and Maxwell awards.
Tennessee was 5-7 last season, missing out on a bowl game. Published in The Messenger 7.26.12
