Crime Tracker

Byron Davis was sentenced to 14 years in prison on charges of robbery, car burglary and theft. 

In July 2014, he was jailed in Wilson County where the crimes occurred, and eventually moved to Bledsoe County to serve his time. 

Three years after the sentencing, in August 2017, Davis was conditionally paroled. 

According to the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, Davis violated the conditions of that parole, earlier this month. 

On April 13, Lebanon police said a woman stepped in to break up a fight between Davis and her sister-in-law when Davis pushed her out of the way and hit her face, causing her to be injured. 

Davis left the scene leading to new charges of assault and evading arrest. 

“It’s important to know that Davis has a history of being violent and one of the new charges in assault,” Lt. Scott Moore with the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said. “He’s been convicted on a robbery charge, a burglary charge, and it’s important that we get him off the street.” 

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-444-1412
