NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- A gang member is arrested this morning in Davidson County for retaliation of a past crime.

Metro police arrested 24-year-old Anthony Pirtle after they found him to be the primary aggressor in a domestic incident Sunday with his girlfriend, according to the jail report. On the way to booking, he allegedly made statements that he was a Crips member and wanted to get out of jail so he could make phone calls to have the victim killed by having "The Nation come down on her."

Pirtle was also arrested in 2012 for being in a local high school with a loaded gun. He is in jail on $230,000 bond.
