Former Auburn football player accused of trying to shoot store clerk now charged with hitting girlfriend with bottle

ENTERPRISE, Ala (WDHN) — A former Auburn Tigers and Enterprise football player accused of trying to shoot a store clerk during a 2023 robbery is facing new charges after police said he assaulted his ex-girlfriend just hours before the robbery.

Coffee County Sheriff Scott Byrd says 36-year-old Raven Gray was released from the Coffee County Jail on Thursday, January 4, on a $132,000 bond.

Gray was arrested on June 9, 2023, after police said he tried to shoot the clerk of a Shell Gas Station on Rucker Boulevard in Enterprise and drove away, prompting Enterprise Patrol Officers to chase him.

Enterprise Police told WDHN Gray was arrested after crashing during the chase and charged with one count of attempted murder and one count of attempting to elude. He is also facing various drug-related charges.

Sheriff Byrd says after his release from the Coffee County Jail, Gray was immediately rearrested on a separate charge of assault in the second degree out of Dale County.

Court documents filed by law enforcement reveal on June 8, 2023, the day before the alleged robbery, Gray hit his ex-girlfriend in the head with a stainless steel bottle, cutting her. A warrant was issued for his arrest while he was in the Coffee County Jail.

Gray was booked into the Dale County Jail on a $5,000 bond for the assault charge and bonded out on January 6.
