Here are a few of the criminal law stories that have recently occurred around the state of Alabama:
- During a police chase in Marshall County recently, a 48-year-old Hazel Green man allegedly tried to eat a bag of meth he was carrying before being tased by officers. A deputy reportedly saw the suspect, Toney Ray Johnson, trying to start his motorcycle and approached him. However, as soon as the deputy started coming his way, Johnson hopped on his motorcycle and took off at a high speed. The deputy chased Johnson to Word Mountain Road where the alleged eating of the meth and subsequent stun gun tasing happened. Johnson has been charged with methamphetamine possession, tampering with evidence, resisting arrest, attempting to elude and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the Marshall County Jail with a bail set at $12,500.
- On April 20th, Justin Wesley Leverett, a 37-year-old Mobile man, allegedly punched a man in the eye so hard that it came out of its socket. According to police, the victim said he was flagged down and asked to exit his vehicle by Leverett when he got punched. After turning himself in last Friday, Leverett was taken to Mobile County Jail and was charged with first-degree assault and three traffic-related offenses.
