Dentist wanted in Tennessee rape, stabbing arrested in Minnesota


A fugitive Tennessee dentist has been arrested in Minnesota.

WVLT in Knoxville reported that Dr. David William Gary, 47, was wanted for sexually assaulting and trying to kill a woman at a Knoxville hotel earlier this month. There was an active Tennessee arrest warrant for attempted first-degree murder and rape.

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office was notified that Gary may be in the county. He was located outside a property in Orion Township and was arrested without incident Wednesday evening. Because of the violent nature of the alleged crimes, Olmsted County deputies enlisted the help of the Rochester Police / Olmsted County Emergency Response Unit and Crisis Negotiations Unit.

A Tennessee police report said the victim, who was acquainted with Gary, went to the Inn of Knoxville with him on November 17 and was stabbed in the torso after an argument. KEYC notes the victim has since been released from the hospital.

Gary was taken to the Olmsted County Adult Detention Center where he is awaiting extradition to Tennessee. The Associated Press reported the extradition hearing would be scheduled after the holiday.
