A man and woman tried to hide from law enforcement Tuesday afternoon by hiding in someone else’s mobile home.

According to the Bartow County Sheriff’s Office incident report, a deputy was performing a traffic stop on Goodyear Avenue when a man alerted him to property being damaged. The man said an elderly woman was “acting very strange” at a Floral Drive residence and breaking her mobile home’s windows.

When the deputy arrived on the scene he only saw a white female and a white male running through the residence’s backyard. Reportedly, the two did not stop running until they got to the front door of another mobile home. After reaching the mobile home, they allegedly went inside and slammed the front door shut as the deputy drove by.

After checking on the first residence, which was not damaged, the deputy returned to the second mobile home to see why anyone was running from the sight of law enforcement. According to the incident report, the homeowner met the deputy in the driveway. and said he was not sure who ran into his home.

The homeowner also said there were other people inside his home who he did not know.

Once the homeowner opened the front door, the deputy recognized Willie Stutler Jr., who was sitting on a chair in the living room. According to the report, the deputy was familiar with Stutler as he had tried to serve Stutler a warrant two days before. Stutler was arrested on probation violation and placed in the patrol vehicle.

The deputy also arrested one of the two people who ran into the mobile home. India Gravley was arrested on contempt of court and placed in the patrol vehicle as well.

Both Stutler and Gravley were transported to the Bartow County Jail without incident.
