Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up July 22nd

J.D. Lloyd - Monday, July 22, 2019


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


- Authorities booked a 26-year-old Mobile County man into the Metro Jail on Wednesday for allegedly being involved in two carjacking incidents within 15 minutes of each and then crashing a stolen vehicle into a cop car. For both incidents last Monday evening, Randal Nelson was said to have pulled a gun on the victims, causing them to flee. The next day, Nelson was arrested after hitting a police car as he was being pursued by law enforcement. He has been charged with first-degree robbery, first-degree criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and attempting to elude police.


- A 27-year-old Hoover man was taken to the Hoover Jail for allegedly impersonating a police officer who tried to pull over a female motorist. The police had received multiple calls on Wednesday evening and midnight Thursday regarding someone in a black SUV activating flashing red and blue lights to try and pull over cars. The suspect, James Andrew Gray, was located on Greystone Way by responding officers and was found to have a red and blue dash light, three firearms, a D.E.A. hat, and three fake badges were located inside his vehicle. According to authorities, Gray said he was trying to pull over speeders because he was worried about kids playing in the neighborhood, though the officers pointed out that the kids most likely were not playing at midnight.

Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up July 8th

J.D. Lloyd - Sunday, July 07, 2019


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

- A Cullman woman is currently being held without bond in the Cullman County Detention Center after police said she accidentally shot her husband while trying to shoot someone else. The injury was the result of a road rage episode that began 6:45 p.m. Saturday on Alabama 69 in Dodge City and ended at a home on County Road 160 in Bremen. While trying to shoot the other party, Erica Cole shot her husband and the bullet struck him in the head, though he is now in stable condition. Cole was arrested on charges of attempted murder, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.



- A 48-year-old man named Shay Michael Thome was arrested by Huntsville police and charged with first-degree assault after allegedly biting off a woman’s finger during a fight. According to authorities, the victim may have been a friend of the suspect's wife. After the incident, other men at the scene "jumped on" Thome to subdue him. He was arrested and booked into the Madison County Jail around 3 a.m. Saturday. Court records revealed that Thome has been arrested twice for driving under the influence and once for carrying a pistol without a license.
