The daughter of former Alabama governor Don Siegleman, Dana, is petitioning for President Barrack Obama to pardon her father.
According to an al.com report, Timothy Tressler, 41, of Oneonta, Ala., was arrested last Friday after setting up a drug deal with a Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputy over the phone.
Tressler dialed up his drug dealer, Jonell White, seeking a gram of heroin but White wasn’t picking up the phone. After ringing him up several times, he finally got White on the phone or so he thought.
After being stopped by police for an equipment violation on his 26-year-old Ford F-150 (shocker), White was arrested for possession of marijuana and trafficking heroin. During his arrest, officers noticed his cell phone being blown up and using their common sense, they assumed that somebody was itching for some of White’s now confiscated drugs. So they decided to kill two birds with one stone.
One of the deputies finally answered Timmy’s call, and the fix was in. How Tressler didn’t know the difference in the deputy’s voice and that of White’s is laughable, but I guess that’s what heroin does to people.
Tressler asked the deputy to meet him at a tattoo shop with a “G”, or gram, of heroin and the kind officer was happy to oblige, kind of. Upon their arrival, cops arrested Timmy and found him to have two outstanding warrants for missing court appearances to face first degree theft charges. Bamboozled and booked, he is now stuck in the county slammer without bond.
Not a bad day’s work for the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.
When it rains, it pours.
Just three days after 17 people were injured in the mass shooting at Copper Top Bar in Tuscaloosa, Ala., 12 moviegoers were killed and another 59 were injured early this morning at an Aurora, Co. theatre during a late night showing of the new Batman movie “The Dark Knight Rises”.
The 71 victims makes the tragedy the largest mass shooting in the history of the U.S..
The suspected shooter has been identified as 24-year-old James Eagan Holmes, a University of Colorado Denver medical school dropout. Holmes moved from San Diego, Calif. to pursue his PhD, but withdrew in June from his neuroscience studies. In an earlier report, ABC’s Brian Ross incorrectly linked Holmes to a Colorado Tea Party.
According to reports, Holmes purchased a ticket to the movie but left quickly after it started, propping an exit door open to allow himself to reenter the theatre unnoticed after gathering his weapons. His hatched plan went off without a hitch.
Holmes resurfaced in the theatre wearing a gas mask, riot helmet, military-style clothing and a bullet proof vest and armed with a military-style AR-15 assault rifle, a shotgun, smoke bomb and two handguns. He proceeded to set off the smoke bomb, prompting people to begin a mass exit and began picking off people one by one as they tried to exit the theatre.
Police apprehended Holmes outside the theatre and quickly began an investigation into his apartment located near the medical campus. Haz-Mat teams were called in as his place was apparently strapped with booby traps.
Holmes is tentatively scheduled to appear in a Colorado courtroom on Monday, although no formal charges have been filed yet.

What do you get when you add alcohol, boys and Facebook to a mix of hormonal sorority chicks that includes the daughter of the most powerful man in the State of Alabama?
You guessed it. A Lawsuit.
Nick Saban’s daughter and current student at the University of Alabama, Kristen, is being sued in the Circuit Court of Tuscaloosa County after an altercation in August of 2010 with one of her sorority sisters, Sarah Grimes.
Grimes is seeking compensatory damages and punitive damages from Kristen Saban after allegedly having her face shoved into the corner of a door and being punched repeatedly in the face by the famous coach’s daughter.
Not surprisingly, Facebook played a large role in the fight.
Might we see Saban vs Zuckerberg in the future?
