Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Chattanooga police responded to a disorder over the weekend after a man in a silver car with three to four men pointed a gun at a security guard at the Country Hearth Inn and Suites, 101 E. 20th St.

No one was charged in pulling the gun, but police arrested three men on weapons charges after they matched a similar description, according to an affidavit of complaint.

Brandon Tremell Robinson, 25, faces charges of unlicensed carrying or possessing of a weapon  and theft of property.
Police located a vehicle matching the description, a silver Hyundai, at 1900 Broad St. about a block north where the handgun was brandished 3:50 a.m. Sunday.

Robinson was found in the backseat on the driver’s side as well as two other occupants. One of the men in the car told officers that they could search the vehicle.

Two Glock handguns were found in the car under the driver and front passenger’s seats. The guns came back as stolen when officers checked.

The three men in the car told police they had no idea that guns were inside the vehicle. The guard was not able to positively identify any of the men in the car as suspects.

Robinson, who is a convicted felon, also had four active warrants for his arrest on charges including two counts of possession of cocaine for resale, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault stemming from two other incidents.

Avios Griffin, 20, and Mikhail Fallins, 20, were occupants in the car and also face charges.

Griffin, who was driving, was charged with unlawful possession of a weapon, theft of property, possession of a firearm while intoxicated driving, driving on a revoked license and underage drinking.

Fallins was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm, theft of property and underage drinking.

All three men are scheduled to appear in court Aug. 11 before Hamilton County Court Judge Lila Statom.
