The Tennessee man who was wanted in the deadly stabbings of the brother of San Francisco 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard and another man was arrested yesterday after a manhunt.
“Accused double murderer Michael D. Mosley just arrested in Cheatham County,” Metropolitan Nashville Police Department tweeted, adding that he will be booked on two counts of criminal homicide and one count of attempted criminal homicide for Saturday morning’s stabbing of three men, two of which were deadly.
Mosley, 23, surrendered from a vacant home in Cheatham County, about an hour from Nashville, after law enforcement, including the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI), the Metro Nashville Police Department’s SWAT team and the U.S. Marshals’ Fugitive Task Force surrounded the property.
Mosley, whom officials added to the TBI’s Most Wanted list Tuesday, allegedly stabbed and killed 22-year-old Clayton Beathard and 21-year-old Paul Trapeni III inside a Nashville bar on Saturday.
A third victim, who was not identified, suffered injuries to his eye and arm. Clayton Beathard is the brother of 49ers quarterback C.J. Beathard.
Police were still investigating exactly what led up to the altercation, but said it appeared to be about an “unwanted” advance made “by a man toward a woman in the bar.”
Mosley’s criminal history reportedly included aggravated assault, attempted aggravated burglary and drug-related arrests going back to 2014.
At the time the stabbings took place, Mosley was out on a $5,000 bond while facing an assault charge for allegedly punching a woman at a Walmart in 2018.
