Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up January 18th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, January 18, 2019


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



- This past Wednesday afternoon, police took an intoxicated Bessemer man into custody after he allegedly broke into a Center Point home and then fled into a wooded area behind Center Point Elementary School. An off-duty officer called the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office and said he witnessed Whitney Williams trying to break into a home. When the suspect realized he had been noticed, he ran into the woods carrying items with him. The school was placed on lockdown, and several deputies and the school resource officer helped bring Williams into custody. They did not see any of the items he had allegedly been carrying, but Williams, a "known drug user and suspect in other crimes" according to police, was visibly intoxicated. Williams was charged with public intoxication and criminal trespassing. 


- Selma police are currently looking for a male suspect they say accidentally discharged his firearm while trying to rob a local store. The man had a skull cap covering his face as he entered the store, grabbed some beer from the alcohol section and brandished his gun in front of the clerk. According to police, the gun went off and fired into the beer cases, though no injuries were reported. The suspect has been compared to a "bumbling Barney Fife" by Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson. 


- A 26-year-old Mobile man was arrested this past Thursday after allegedly making more than 20 false calls reporting apartment fires and mass shootings to a local apartment complex. David Kass faces two counts of terroristic threats and seven misdemeanor charges of rendering false calls.
