20-Year-old Devon A. Butts

A man wanted on a kidnapping charge in Nashville was apprehended in Murfreesboro at Hawthorne South Apartments on Indian Park Drive.

20-Year-old Devon A. Butts was taken into custody when a Rutherford County Sheriff's Deputy called Murfreesboro Police to the apartment complex to assist with a noise complaint. After authorities made contact with Butts, it was realized that he had the single kidnapping warrant for his arrest from the Nashville Metro Police Department.

Butts was accused of kidnapping a student at Tennessee State University this past September. Butts was one of six accused of the incident. Others have already been arrested.


Butts and others were accused of brutally attacking the victim during the reported kidnapping in Nashville. The kidnapping was said to be at gunpoint and the victim was allegedly taken from a dorm building on the TSU campus. Butts was reported to be still "At Large" by Metro Police.

After the victim was kidnapped, he was driven to Centennial Park where he was assaulted.


That case is still under investigation by TSU Police and the Metro Police Department.

Butts, who was apprehended early Tuesday (11/14/17) morning in Murfreesboro, remains in custody at this time. He is currently at the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center, but will soon be transferred to Nashville.


MPD Arrest 17-24059
