Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 4th, 2019

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, March 04, 2019


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




- This past Wednesday, Huntsville police officer Gerald Johnson was dining at the Meteor Buffet restaurant when a bizarre fight broke out with two diners disputing over a popular food item. According to the officer, diners in the restaurant had been waiting more than ten minutes for the crab legs to come out, and once the food was put on the hot bar, patrons did not serve themselves peacefully. Tempers flared as plates shattered and serving tongs were used like swords. Chequita Jenkins allegedly participated in the scuffle by beating fellow patron John Chapman and leaving him with a cut on his head. Jenkins faces assault charges while Chapman was charged with disorderly conduct.


- A Woodville man, 45-year-old Roger Dale Johnson, is facing charges of attempted assault and possession of a destructive device after allegedly trying to blow up his mother with a booby-trapped storage shed containing a propane tank. Police responded to the mother's call when she reported that her son may be on some type of narcotics while also storing the propane tank in the shed. When the suspect's mother and a Jackson County Sheriff's officer tried to enter the shed, a small explosion occurred. A device reportedly was supposed to ignite the tank, but the gas was not turned on, which fortunately meant no injuries for either the officer or the mother.
