Hayes Grier Arrested for Robbery That Allegedly Left Man with Brain Damage
03 August 2021
Influencer Hayes Grier was arrested after allegedly assaulting someone in Charlotte, North Carolina last week.
According to arrest warrants obtained by TMZ, the ex-Vine star — whose brother is fellow social media star Nash Grier — was charged with common law robbery, felony conspiracy and assault that inflicts serious bodily injury last Friday.
The documents allege that the 21-year-old Dancing With the Stars contestant left victim William Markolf with a "broken left orbital bone, brain damage, bruised ribs, bleeding from the back of the head, swelling behind left ears, [and] loss of hearing in the left ear" and then stole his $1,200 iPhone SE. The warrants for his arrest reportedly allowed the Mecklenburg County Sheriff's Office to bring him back to North Carolina from his home in Encino, California. However, Grier has since been bailed out on a $17,500 bond.
It's currently unclear what led up to the alleged attack, however another ex-Vine creator named Luke Foushee was also listed as a supposed conspirator in the crime. Foushee has yet to be arrested.
Grier has yet to comment on the arrest or allegations.
