NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 19-year-old Nashville man is behind bars thanks to a piece of ice on the street.

Three of them got out of their car and approached him, and before he realized it, Guinn said he felt guns to the back of his head.

The victim reported the men demanded his money and clothes before throwing him down on the street and running back toward their car.

Metro police arrested Devonta Hall and charged him with aggravated robbery. Authorities said he drove the getaway car in the robbery of a man who was shoveling his driveway.

The man driving the car, later identified as Devonta Hall, tried to drive away but the car got stuck on the ice.

Police were called and Hall was arrested a mere several blocks away. Officers brought him to the house where the victim and eyewitness identified him as the man behind the wheel.

Hall, who has been arrested nine times before, was charged with aggravated robbery.
