Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up September 21st

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, September 21, 2018



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


- This past Tuesday morning, Homewood police pursued a suspect in his car across town in a chase that eventually led to a crash at a busy intersection and a woman being taken hostage at a local laundromat. Initially, a Homewood tried to pull over the suspect, who has yet to be identified, for having a switched tag, but started chasing him when the suspect refused to stop. The suspect then crashed into another motorist at the intersection of Green Springs Highway and Columbiana Road, fled the vehicle and ran to the Palisades shopping center nearby. Fortunately, the driver of the vehicle was not injured. After running into the Cleaners & Coin Laundry on Palisades Drive, the suspect grabbed one of the customers and tried to drag her into a back room. Police say he possibly thought there was a back entrance to the store. After the police surrounded him near the rear of the store, the suspect collapsed from his injuries, allegedly bleeding from the impact of the airbags in the crash. He was transported to UAB Hospital by Homewood medics called to the scene. According to Sgt. John Carr, the suspect had been driving a vehicle that had been reported stolen to Birmingham police last month. He now faces several charges including receiving stolen property and possible kidnapping.



- A woman was inside her Birmingham home this past Sunday morning when a large rock came crashing through her front window. After opening the front door, she saw her ex-boyfriend, 37-year-old Kevin Bernard Zeigler, sitting in his car in the road in front of the residence. He fired several shots and the car drove away. After deputies were dispatched to the victim's home, they learned of Zeigler's possible location at a nearby apartment. After opening the door and seeing the deputies, Zeigler retreated back inside, closed the door and jumped from the third floor of the apartment after deputies followed him. He was taken to Jefferson County Jail to await formal charges, and after he was formally charged Zeigler with second-degree domestic violence-stalking, he was released on a $25,000 bond.




- A second arrest has been in Mobile's "coldest case," in which three people were shot at point-blank range at a Chevron gas station in July. The suspect, 19-year-old Ghacquez Ludgood, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with conspiring the rob the station, though he is not accused of shooting the victims. The other suspect, 21-year-old Emanual Mcalpine, was arrested last Wednesday and charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of robbery.
