A Gangster Disciple member wanted in connection with a vicious stomping at College Hill Courts and an attack on his girlfriend's mother has been apprehended.

Roland Denzel Price, 24, was taken into custody on Sunday after he pulled a gun on officers and refused to give it up.

He is charged with two counts of assault, two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of aggravated riot, and five counts of criminal trespass.

The stomping incident from Dec. 7 was caught on a Chattanooga Housing Authority video camera.

Police said at 4:45 p.m. they were notified of a fight that had taken place earlier in an alley in the 1200 block of Cypress Street Courts.

Brian Stone, who had been assaulted 35 minutes earlier, is shown returning to the scene. He is then ganged by six males led by Price, police said. He was hit multiple times by different individuals with closed fists.

Police said the video shows Stone then being knocked to the ground and stomped by the six males. Price stomps on his head about seven times, while the others kick him in the head and torso.

The victim by then was unconscious and can be seen lying in the street not moving.

Police said Price then returned to the victim and kicked him in the stomach as he lay unconscious.

Police said in the video members of a crowd can be heard yelling and joining in the assault on the hapless victim. It says they were causing "a massive disorder."

Bystanders can be heard saying, "Stop it. That's how you can kill a person."

The victim was then transported by EMS to the hospital.

Police said Price has been arrested numerous times at College Hill Courts for violent acts.

He is on the CHA trespass list.

In an incident on Jan. 2, the mother of the girlfriend of Price said she went to College Hill Courts to visit her daughter. She said the daughter was not there, but Price was.

She said she got into an argument with her and he began punching her in the face. She said he then grabbed her by the hair and dragged her down stairs and out of the unit.

Police said the woman had swelling on the side of her face and was holding a clump of hair that had been pulled out.

On Saturday, police said they saw Price enter the driver's seat of a silver Toyota Sequoia parked at W. 12th Street Court. He drove away.

Police tried to stop the silver Toyota as Price drove from Workman Road to Hooker Road. The vehicle finally slowed and came to a stop on Jeffery Lane.

Police said Price came out of the vehicle holding a handgun, and he refused numerous commands to give up the weapon.

There then began a foot chase. Price was caught after he slipped and fell at Woodland View Circle. He tossed the gun, but officers were able to retrieve it. The magazine for the weapon was located separately, and it had five rounds in it.

Three small children were in the vehicle. Police said there were no child restraints visible in the vehicle. The mother of the children, Lillie Cheeves, was also in the Toyota.

Police said Price smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech. He said he had been drinking and smoking marijuana prior to getting into the car.

Price was driving on a revoked license. He refused a blood alcohol test. He has a felony record and is not suppose to possess guns, it was stated.

Additional charges include reckless endangerment, resisting arrest, child neglect, not properly restraining children, and failure to yield.
