KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Police in Knoxville have closed the case on accusations that Vols quarterback Tyler Bray and his roommate threw beer bottles and golf balls onto parked vehicles.

Bray avoided being prosecuted on potential felony vandalism charges in July by agreeing to pay for damage to an SUV at his apartment complex, Landings Riverside Apartments, at 960 Riverside Forest Way.

The SUV owner Bradi Hudson, 22, of Knoxville, told police she would not prosecute Bray or his roommate, Michael C. Grandinetti, 26.

Police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said a second allegation, involving a vandalized Volkswagen Jetta, won't be pursued at the victim's request.

DeBusk said the Jetta owner, Kirstie Allen, made her decision because the management of the apartments will pay for her car to be fixed.

Allen had told police when she reported the damage that she thought it was retaliation because she called police on Bray and Grandinetti a couple nights earlier.

Bray and Grandinetti were served with an eviction notice just before Allen got home for lunch that day. During the time she was eating, her car was damaged.
