A man has been arrested in Johnson City after trespassing at a hotel. Peter B. Grindstaff, of Gray, was arrested on Monday after Johnson City officers responded to the Quality Inn at 1900 South Roan Street at approximately 10 a.m. in reference to a subject trespassing. Officers spoke with hotel employees who said that Grindstaff was sleeping inside a room that was supposed to be vacant. When officers found him, they were able to identify him and found that he was a convicted felon and had an active warrant in Johnson City and was taken into custody.
