Bond set in alleged assault


A $100,000 bond was set Thursday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly rammed a vehicle occupied by his wife and three other people last week.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Tyrice Graydon, 25, with four counts of aggravated assault and with terroristic threatening.

According to a probable-cause affidavit from Detective Jacqueline Stevenson, Graydon’s wife, another woman and two children were in a vehicle when Graydon struck it with his truck and tried to hit it a second time before the driver was able to get away and contact police.

Graydon also allegedly went to the home he shared with his wife and children and told her he was going to shoot her mother.

Police were unable to locate Graydon for several days and during that time he allegedly called his wife and threatened and cursed her because she had called police.

In addition to setting the bond, Graydon was ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims until the case is settled.
