Greene County Man Arrested Following Shooting at Goobertown

GOOBERTOWN, AR - A Greene County man faces charges of being drunk, insane and disorderly following an incident this afternoon involving gunfire.

Craighead County Sheriff Jack McCann told Region 8 News that 57-year-old Gary Grambling was arrested around 1:45 p.m. at a residence on County Road 795 near Goobertown.

Grambling, who apparently mows lawns as a means of income, had showed up to mow the yard of a customer in the area, but was heavily armed and reportedly complaining about the Greene County Sheriff's Department.  Upon seeing the suspect's suspicious behavior, the homeowner called the Craighead County Sheriff's Department.  When deputies arrived at the scene, Grambling allegedly began firing at random.  He was arrested and taken to the Craighead County Detention Center.
