A Gainesville man was arrested on an aggravated stalking charge Tuesday after his former girlfriend reported that she saw him slashing tires on her new car.

Charged was Jerald James Williams, 45, of 3111 NE 12th St., according to a Gainesville Police Department arrest report.

Williams’ former girlfriend told police she came out of her apartment and saw him by her car with a bladed object. Her four tires were flattened.

The report states she told police that six tires previously had been damaged. The woman also told police she had to change her phone number because of repeated calls from him and that Williams had been given a trespass warning from the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Gainesville, at which the woman works.
