Prep football star charged in dispute

A Zephyrhills High football standout was charged with aggravated assault and criminal mischief after a dispute with his landlord Saturday. Police accused Sean Gray of swinging a 21/2-foot long metal pipe at a man during an argument at a mobile home in the 39200 block of Lizabeth Circle. Gray told deputies he threatened the landlord because the man was damaging the inside of his rental home. At 6-foot-5 and 270 pounds, Gray starred as a lineman this past season. He recently signed with North Carolina Tech.
