The man who was shot by a homeowner near Mitchell Neilson Elementary School after a resident suspected him of theft this past June has been re-arrested after failing to appear in court for unrelated theft charges dealing with a stolen DVD.
Dalling was pulled over on South Molloy Lane at Bridge Avenue in Murfreesboro by Officer Levy when it was noticed that Dalling was not wearing a seatbelt. Evidently, Dalling had a Capias Warrant for his arrest for failing to appear before Judge David Bragg for an arraignment in Circuit Court. Dalling was taken to the local jail where he was booked without bond.
His new court date in Circuit Court has yet to be announced.
Looking back to what led to Dalling's previous run in with the law in June, Police Sgt. Kyle Evans recapped what occurred…
MPD Arrest Report #14-2043
MPD Arrest #13-19342
MPD Incident Report #13-19342
Looking Back (June of 2013):
Dalling was shot with a .22 caliber gun. He was charged with 1-count Aggravated Criminal Trespass and 2 Counts of Burglary.
The subject apparently made his way to the home in question after parking his car in a neighboring driveway. Once at the Clark Blvd. address, the homeowner confronted Dalling in the area of his driveway and informed him to put his hands up. It was when Dalling allegedly went for his pocket that the victim fired a shot from the .22 striking Dalling in the upper portion of the arm near the armpit.
After being shot he was taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center and released soon after and booked into the local jail. He was later released from jail an hour and 27-minutes after being booked.
No charges were filed against the homeowner for any wrongdoing in the original case WGNS reported in June.
