Vine star Hayes Grier was arrested on Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina, after allegedly beating another man to a pulp, leaving the victim with brain damage and bruised ribs. The 21-year-old is said to have had multiple warrants out for his arrest, stemming from a violent altercation on Monday, TMZ reported.
Grier is accused of beating up William Markolf, leaving him with damage to his eye socket, bruised ribs, and even a serious head trauma that resulted in a loss of hearing, the warrant alleges. After the attack, Grier is accused of stealing Markolf’s $1,200 phone. The warrant didn’t specify what led to the fight, but Grier was charged with common law robbery, a felony conspiracy, and assault causing serious bodily injury. The former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant was freed after posting $17,500 bail, according to the Charlotte Observer. Grier is the younger brother of fellow social media star Nash Grier, as well as North Carolina Panthers quarterback Will Grier.
