HOT SPRINGS, AR – The Mt. Pine School District Superintendent was arrested after an argument with his wife and a Garland County deputy.
Robert Gray was arrested at his home the night of February 25th. He was charged with disorderly conduct, 3rd degree battery, and public intoxication, all misdemeanors.
According to the arrest report, Gray had been drinking and he and his wife were arguing. Gray’s wife says in the report that she was trying to leave their home with her sister and brother-in-law, but Gray would not let her. The brother-in-law tells sheriff’s deputies that Mr. Gray became physical with him when he tried to help Ms. Gray.
When deputies confronted Gray, according to the report, Gray was combative and actually fought with deputies before he was overpowered and handcuffed. At one point Gray even threatened a deputy by telling him he knew Garland County Sheriff Larry Sanders, and he “would be out of a job tomorrow,” according to the arrest report.
Gray was booked in the Garland County Jail on $2,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for March 20th.
