He suffered a large laceration on the back of his head, severe swelling to the left side of his face, and two of his teeth were knocked out.
After Gray, 23, was arrested, a 22 Magnum revolver and marijuana was found in his possession.
He was served with a total of 27 warrants and booked into the Montgomery County jail.
