Yesterday afternoon, a detective stopped a vehicle near Publix on Lebanon Rd due to an expired tag violation, where Krantz was the driver. Krantz immediately ran from the vehicle, and the detective stayed with the adult female passenger while other officers searched the area. After determining the identity of Krantz, officers stopped the enhanced search and focused on other methods for apprehension. It was also discovered that he was wanted out of Nashville, Cheatham county, and Humphreys county for misdemeanor warrants.

Krantz was located around 10:00 a.m. this morning near N. Mt. Juliet Rd and Pleasant Grove Rd, where he was arrested. He was charged locally with evading and possession of drug paraphernalia.
