Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 29th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, March 29, 2019


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


- Viral videos are all the rage these days, but one of the latest uploads focused on two Limestone County men displaying actual road rage. Posted to Facebook on Wednesday, the video showed a truck stopping in front of another vehicle. Two individuals driving the truck that stopped walked up to the motorist of the other vehicle, who was the one filming the incident. In his post, the motorist said the truck was "tailgating him and then cut him off in traffic after he warned the truck that it was staying too close by tapping on his brakes." After the video was posted online, investigators identified the two suspects as 42-year-old Bradley Joe Carter and an unnamed juvenile male. When sheriff's deputies went to Carter's home, the department said that Carter resisted arrest. Carter was charged with disorderly conduct, endangering the welfare of a child and resisting arrest while the juvenile was charged with disorderly conduct. Carter was released from Limestone County Jail after posting a $2,500 bond.


- While being questioned by police this past Wednesday, a Town Creek man suspected of domestic violence pretended to be an Alabama state trooper by showing a replica badge. Police encountered 31-year-old Cheston Jared Campbell while investigating an report of domestic violence in the area of Sixth Avenue and Gordon Drive Southeast. Authorities said that Campbell had been assaulting a woman when a civilian intervened and stopped the suspect. Campbell revealed his fake badge to multiple officers who tried to intervene. However, Decatur police spokeswoman Emme Long revealed that the replica was an old badge that was no longer in use. Though police have not announced a domestic violence charge, Campbell has been charged with a Class C felony for impersonating a peace officer, according to Decatur police. If convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up March 13th

J.D. Lloyd - Wednesday, March 13, 2019


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


- A few weeks ago, a 61-year-old man posing as an Uber driver was pulled over by a Tuscaloosa County sheriff’s deputy in the early morning hour of 2:30 a.m. When the officer approached the vehicle, he noticed an unconscious college-aged female in the backseat. The suspect, Tommy Wayne Beard, then stated that he was an Uber driver and that he was taking the "intoxicated" passenger back to her residence. When investigators spoke with the passenger, they learned that she was a 22-year-old UA student who lived near the campus. However, she said that she did not remember getting into the car with Beard and only could remember leaving a downtown Tuscaloosa bar. Beard later confessed that he was not an official Uber driver, but that he placed the sticker on his 2012 black Ford Taurus so he could pick people up and give them rides. Upon looking on Beard's cell phone, they discovered photographs of college-aged females that appeared to be unconscious while they were in the backseat of his vehicle in his cell phone, something to which Beard admitted. This past Friday, Beard has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and was booked into the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $45,000 bond.


- The Chatham-Savannah Counter Narcotics Team reported that 53-year-old Gregory Bohannon and his wife, 58-year-old Teresea Bohannon, were arrested last Monday after they were discovered in a semitrailer with over four kilograms of cocaine, 600 pounds of marijuana and $20,000 in cash. Days later, three male suspects, Oronda Oberry, Oronda Hamilton and Eric Maxwell, were stopped in a car with over 3,400 ecstasy pills inside with an estimated street value of $68,000.

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.
