Placeholder Image
A man who wanted a jail cell for the night got his wish after he threatened to smash a policeman’s windshield when he didn’t immediately get his wish.The man, Gregory B. Bray, entered a guilty plea during arraignment before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to the charge of attempted vandalism. He was given a six-month probationary sentence and released from jail on time served. He was granted a judicial diversion, meaning he can have his criminal record erased if he gets in no more trouble during his time on probation.His encounter with the law came when he approached McMinnville police officer Joseph Vanbommel, who was at police headquarters.“He stated he wanted a cell for the night as he had stolen $2,000 worth of merchandise from Walmart in the past,” Vanbommel recalled of the suspect’s claim.
