Alabama Criminal Law Round-Up October 20th

J.D. Lloyd - Friday, October 20, 2017


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



- A Mobile County hit-and-run on Highway 43 involving a car and a motorcycle led to the arrest of suspect Charles Smith. After the crash, Smith fled the scene with his car pushing the motorcycle with him for two miles. Smith was booked into the Mobile County Jail on a Class C felony charge of leaving the scene. If convicted, he could face up to 10 years in prison. The motorcyclist, Ashley Sanderson, was treated USA Medical Center.



- Two Birmingham men and one Jasper man are in the Jefferson County Jail after allegedly "borrowing" two trucks from a local business. Police were alerted to the theft after the GPS had been activated on one of the vehicles. The business was closed at the time of the theft and no worker had permission to use the trucks after hours. The caller informed authorities of the GPS location and officers eventually found one truck by a pond near Coalburg Road. Though two men tried to flee, officers arrested all three suspects, who said they "borrowed" the trucks to help get theirs out of the mud and planned to return the vehicles to the business. The police did not believe the men, charging Ronnie Dale Pruitt, Michael Lewis and Roy Pollock with two counts of first-degree theft of property each.




- A campsite argument during last weekend's Talladega Superspeedway race led to one man being shot and the other questioned by police. The wounded man had gotten the suspect into a headlock. The man responded by allegedly pulling out a small handgun and shooting the victim in the abdomen. The wounded man was treated at UAB Hospital and the other was questioned by police, who are still trying to determine the reason for the fight.
