  1. since the full article link is no longer workable let me add taht after the above altercation he moved to dothan and AGAIN responsible for having the SWAT come to his apartment due to threats of violence and that he wouod shoot himself. so just how many SWAT team visits will it take for local LE to get a hint that he os not fit for duty? not to mention that the last wife he was pointing his DV at was 17 years old when he met her and got her pregnant. note to LE Dept Heads.... the more dirt you try to sweep under the carpet the more difficult it is to hide.

  3. He is now headed to prison, having been sentenced to 25 years for "sexual relations with a 12 year old".
