A shocking case… According to information from TMZ, released this weekend, former Vine star and digital influencer, Hayes Grier, has been arrested and faces charges of robbery and assault in North Carolina, United States.
The case began last Friday (30), when Hayes, who has been working with social media since the video platform went down, was arrested in Mecklenburg County after some arrest warrants were issued to bring him to the local. Previously, Greer resided in Encino, California.
According to arrest warrants obtained by TMZ, a judge ordered the arrest of the influencer based on preliminary evidence provided by Charlotte Police about an attack he allegedly committed on Monday (26).
Although she did not provide full details of the case, the documents revealed enough to understand what happened. Also according to TMZ, the young content creator allegedly stole a mobile phone worth $1,200 (about R$6,150) and then hit the victim, known as William Markolph, seriously injuring him.
The attack left Markolph with several serious injuries that police said included a fracture of the left orbital bone (the orbit of the eyeball), brain damage, bruised ribs, bleeding from the back of the head and hearing loss. Grier was subsequently released after paying a bond of US$17,500 (about R$89,000).
According to US reporter Joe Bruno, the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office reports that Greer faces three felony counts of common law theft, criminal conspiracy, aggravated assault and bodily harm.
