According to our TV News Partner, WVLT, 28 year-old Christopher Grassia, III pled guilty to Aggravated Kidnapping and Unlawful Possession of a Weapon. Prosecutors say Grassia has been classified as a member of the White Aryan Resistance.
This plea is a result of two separate incidents. One in July, when KPD responded to a domestic disturbance call on Fourth Avenue. The other in August, when a KPD officer conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle driven by Grassia. During a search of the vehicle, officers found a handgun under his seat and he had eight prior felony convictions, making it illegal for him to possess a firearm.
