Bondsman once jailed in Gwinnett apparently on job again

A man who spent two years in the Gwinnett County jail on charges that grew out of a bounty-hunting incident apparently is on the job again.

Kevin Roberson was recognized in a Facebook video posted by a Chattanooga resident, Channel 2 Action News reported.

And Roberson again is accused of using questionable job methods.

Two years ago, Roberson went to trial after he and a partner burst into Tiffany Hayes’ home and appeared to threaten her children, the news station reported. The incident was captured on cellphone video.

But he was cleared by a jury of aggravated assault and child cruelty charges.

Now there are calls for his arrest in Tennessee, though authorities have filed no charges.

“He said if we didn't let him in he was going to break the door down,” said Chattanooga resident Corey Craddock, who posted the Facebook video.

Craddock said the video shows Roberson forcing him to the ground in his grandmother's home before holding him at gunpoint, of Chattanooga reported.

He said Roberson was looking for someone else, and the person he sought wasn’t there, according to the website story. As soon as he posted videos of the situation, he said people recognized the armed intruder.
