ASHLAND CITY, Tenn. -

Authorities in Cheatham County have arrested the man who rented a U-Haul truck that was allegedly used to try and steal a man's all-terrain vehicle last month.

Homeowner Jerry Cannon told Nashville's News 2 he heard his RTV start up early on the morning of October 24 and spotted a man driving it down his driveway.

Cannon said he got into his truck and confronted the man on a side street nearby.

He said the man tried to run him over, so he discharged a gun and shot two bullet holes into the man's U-Haul truck.

According to authorities, the truck had been rented by Michael Gragg.

Gragg is also accused of stealing two chainsaws and a rifle belonging to Cannon.

He was arrested Friday night on charges of aggravated assault and theft.

Deputies say he is also a suspect in a number of other crimes.

Cannon's stolen rifle and one of two chainsaws has been returned.
