Man accused of killing buddy with television

LAWRENCEVILLE - As police tell it, Reggie Pulley stopped by his buddy Darryl Mason's Norcross apartment on April 9 to simply catch up.

But for some reason, the two started arguing, and Pulley got angry - so angry, he picked up a television and beat Mason across the face and body with it, hard enough to break Mason's ribs and severely traumatize his head, according to documents released this week.

Police say Pulley, 30, then fled Georgia in his pal's 1997 Mazda Protege. Two weeks later, Pulley reportedly admitted to the murder after police in Water Valley, Miss., arrested him on unrelated charges. He was later extradited to Gwinnett, where he remains jailed without bond.

A Gwinnett grand jury this week found cause to indict Pulley for killing Mason, 38, in Mason's Meadowood Commons apartment.

Pulley, who had formerly lived in Norcross, also stole two PlayStation gaming systems, 20 video games, some jewelry and about 30 DVDs from his friend, the indictment says. He's charged with murder, felony murder, aggravated assault and two counts of theft by taking.

His arraignment is expected within a month.

Officers were initially called to Mason's residence when he failed to show up for work.

In other indictments released this week:

· A Lawrenceville man was indicted on charges he provided the gun to a group of youngsters that killed Kristen Ivory Hannon, 17.

Carl Royal Robinson, 20, is accused of furnishing a .357 to a group of teens who reportedly used the weapon in a game of Russian Roulette. Hannon, a Central Gwinnett student, died of a gunshot to her chest when the weapon discharged.

Police issued a warrant last August for Robinson, of Lawrenceville, alleging he "knowingly and recklessly" furnished the gun to minors while on probation for previous violent crimes.

Police arrested Robinson on July 4 while questioning his friend at a Citgo Gas station on Northdale Road.

He remains in the Gwinnett County Jail without bond.

· A Sugar Hill man was indicted on charges he tried to run over two cops with his Cadillac Fleetwood.

Robin Wayne Ruth faces five total counts, including aggravated assault, attempting to flee or elude and driving without a license. He remains in jail without bond.

In May, Ruth allegedly barreled toward two Suwanee police officers after he was pulled over in a parking lot on Suwanee Dam Road.

No police were injured in the incident.
