Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up December 7th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, December 07, 2018


Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:


- A 60-year-old led police officers from two cities on a 15-mile chase throughout the city of Birmingham this past Tuesday, all the while waving a BB gun out of the window of his green Toyota pickup truck. The Tarrant police had been receiving reports of the suspect, Robert Reddick, driving on Highway 79 and pointing the gun at people. When a marked patrol tried to pull over Reddick, he refused and officers started pursuing him. The chase traveled along Interstate 59/20 to Interstate 65 with top speeds reaching around 60 mph and Reddick continuing to wave his gun out the window. Reddick eventually got off the interstate, stopped in his driveway off Center Point Parkway and got out of the car, gun still in hand. When the officers took him into custody, the gun was discovered to be a BB gun. Reddick was also suspected to have been intoxicated during the incident. He was taken to Tarrant City Jail to await formal charges.



- Former chief meteorologist for ABC 33/40, Mark Prater, is currently in the Jefferson County Jail on charges of second-degree domestic violence/stalking and a bail of $100,000. He was booked on Wednesday morning after Moody and Trussville police arrested him at his Moody home following the issuance of a warrant on December 4th. Tuesday also marked the day that a protection from abuse (PFA) request was filed against Prater by a woman who said Prater had threatened to take her daughter away multiple times during this past November and had made an appearance at her house, leaving a note on the door when she called the police. The morning of December 4th, Prater allegedly sent the woman 37 emails and called her 17 times. If convicted of second-degree domestic violence, Prater could serve a minimum of six months in jail or prison without probation, parole, good time credits, or any reduction in time for any second or subsequent conviction. A hearing regarding the PFA has been set for January.
