Police charged man with domestic aggravated assault, criminal impersonation

A Clarksville man who attempted to elude police has been arrested and charged with  domestic aggravated assault, criminal impersonation, evading arrest and being a fugitive from justice.

Officers responded to a home in the 100 block of Darlene Drive on at 2:50 a.m. on Tuesday. Officers could hear a man yelling. Officers announced their presence and asked people to open the door. A man and two women refused several times but finally answered after officers said they would force their way in.

Two women opened the door, but when an officer talked to the man, Gerrod Pointer, 24, he gave the officer the false name Larry Sanders, showed a false birth date and said he could not find his ID.

The man claiming to be Pointer told police the information was correct and asked to go upstairs to check on his children. Pointer went upstairs, came down with an empty glass and said he was getting his daughters water. He then went into the kitchen, ran out the back door and jumped his back fence. Officers saw him get into a white car and leave.

Officers attempted to serve Pointer a warrant on Sunday, but he ran out the back door. Officers told him to stop, but he ran back inside and locked the door.

Police were able to enter the house and arrest Pointer, who also had warrants in Kansas.

Pointer gave a 148 Darlene Drive address. He was booked into the Montgomery County Jail on Sunday, and his bond was set at $172,500.
