According to the victims and the witnesses, Grayson, 24, was wandering around the neighborhood in a drunken state that morning.

The victims told officers they ran inside and closed the door when they noticed Grayson.

Grayson allegedly ran up to their house and began “violently beating on the door.” According to the victims, Grayson then forced his way into the home by breaking the door off from the frame.

According to the release, Grayson then “violently ranted and raged through the residence.”

Grayson allegedly destroyed property while he was asking about the victims where his mother and sister were.

Muhannad said neither Grayson nor his mother and sister live in the residence.

Grayson was eventually taken into custody after the victims were able to call the police.

According to the victim, Grayson has done this same thing in the past, but it was settled civilly.

Grayson was transported to the Dallas County Jail, where he is being held on a $30,000 bond as of Monday afternoon.
