GREENWOOD, Ind. ( December 25, 2015) — Former Indianapolis Colt Zurlon Z. Tipton was arrested early Friday morning and charged with criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon after he reportedly went to his girlfriend’s home and shot a round from a Colt AR-15 assault rifle into the house.
Greenwood Police responded to the call shortly before 1a.m. Friday in the 1400 block of Round Lake Road. Upon questioning of witnesses there, they discovered that Zurlon and his brother, Cortez Tipton, had left a party in Brownsburg upon receiving texts from Zurlon’s girlfriend that her life was in danger due to threatening text messages from her ex-boyfriend.
However further investigation revealed that the boyfriend was not inside the house and upon firing the rifle, both Zurlon and his brother fled the scene but were stopped shortly thereafter by Greenwood Police who arrested Zurlon and took him to Johnson County Jail.
He was later released on $3,000 bond.
Cortez Tipton has had no charges filed against him as the investigation is ongoing.
