Investigators with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office have issued arrest warrants for three bounty hunters working for Grumpy’s Bail Bonds for assault and failure to follow state laws on bounty hunting procedures.
Andrew Scott Giarratano, 29, Charles Victor Mullins, 33, Jason Glendale Woosley, 36, went to a residence in the 2000 block of River Road at approximately 12:45 a.m. on November 16, 2018, to take into custody two individuals who had misdemeanor warrants of out of Hickman County.
The bounty hunters attempted to make forced entry into the home by kicking in the front door. When the victim heard the noise he asked the men who they were. They informed him they were bounty hunters. The victim told them to hold on while he put away his dog that bites. When he returned to the door, the bounty hunters had kicked it in striking the victim on the forehead. The victim required medical attention and more than a dozen stitches to his forehead.
When the bounty hunters arrived at the Montgomery County Jail to turn over custody of the two individuals, they did not have copies of the certified bond or capias and they did not have a pocket card certifying they had completed the training required by state law.
Bond for Giarratano, Mullins, and Woosley is set at $5000 each. Anyone with information on their location is asked to call 911 or Investigator Geoff Blanchard at 931-648-0611 ext. 13408.
