Troy police recently arrested a 37-year-old woman

on a charge she assaulted a police officer after being

charged with driving under the influence.

 

Court records indicate police charged Amelia McKnight,

of Helena, and charged her with felony second-degree

assault. Records indicate the charge stemmed from

McKnight allegedly becoming combative in the booking

area of the police department after the initial arrest for DUI.

8:55 and we are waiting for Judge Thompson to enter the courtroom. The defendants and their attorneys are present... Attorney Siegel is pacing back and forth with his hands clasped behind his back, waiting to continue his cross examination of Senator Beason. The government's team is in place. I will update when there is a break for me to copy and paste.


Senator Beason has just gotten on the stand. We are still waiting for the Judge and Jury.


9:01: Everyone is standing waiting for the Judge and Jury to enter the courtroom.


9:02 The Judge is in the courtroom and Mr. Siegel begins his testimony.


Siegel: Tell me if I am right about this, Mr. Crosby did not do anything different in the drafting the bill you wanted in 2010 that what you asked to be done? Whatever you say Mr. Crosby did with respect to the bill that you requested to draft in Jan of 2010, it is not your intention that he did it to assist Mr. McGregor in any way? Beason said that he did not know what Mr. Crosby’s intention was.

Day Two of Trial of Dr. Andrew Osborne

 

Day two of the trial of Dr. Andrew Osborne began with the other police officer taking the stand and speaking to what Ms. Osborne stated on the night of the incident. The officer’s testimony was very short and no new information was gleaned from the testimony.


Next to take the stand was Dr. Enslaught (spelling?) who was the emergency room physician that treated Ms. Osborne when she was taken to the hospital. Dr, Enslaught stated the majority of Ms. Osborne’s injuries were to her face and they were consistent with being assaulted. There were x-rays as well as a ct scan ordered on Ms. Osborne because of her injuries. Her ulna (small bone on outside of forearm) was fractured in what the doctor referred to as a spiral fracture. Dr. Enslaught advised this type of fracture could be thought of as a defensive injury or defensive posturing. Ms. Osborne did admit to drinking that evening and told Dr. Enslaught she had two glasses of wine. He did not order a drug or alcohol screen because she was lucid and coherent.


Under cross examination, Dr. Enslaught, stated the injuries to Ms. Osborne’s face were fairly equal on both sides of her face. When asked about her broken ulna, the doctor stated it could have occurred if she had fallen down. Dr. Enslaught stated Ms. Osborne did not tell him she had been thrown to the floor 5 to 6 times and that she had lost consciousness. This was a point of contention that would be raised later by defense attorney Adams. As to injury to Ms. Osborne’s ears, the doctor noted that there was no injury to the inside of the ear and that there was no blood present behind the ear drum and that the ear drum was in fact intact. At this point, the doctor was asked to go over photos with the jury and explain what each was and what the photo showed, after which Dr. Enslaught was excused from the stand.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — An Alabama death row inmate

has asked a federal appeals court to stop his execution by

lethal injection for the murder and rape 16 years ago of an

elderly Tuscaloosa County woman.

Eddie Duval Powell has appealed to the U.S. 11tth Circuit Court

of Appeals to stop his scheduled Thursday execution because

the state recently switched a key drug used in executions.

The 41-year-old Powell claims the new drug, pentobarbital,

might cause him pain and suffering.

U.S. Vs. McGregor et al

 

12:18 – When the court broke for lunch, Judge Myron Thompson read a note from a juror in which the juror asked if Beason’s activity on the recorded conversations could be considered entrapment. The juror also asked if Beason was coached in preparation for the recorded conversations.

“We have two issues,” Thompson said. “The first is a legal issue with entrapment. The second is a factual issue.”

Thompson suggested he answer the juror’s second question by saying that often those questions answer themselves after additional testimony. My guess is the prosecutor will come back after lunch and ask Beason if he was coached.

As to the entrapment question, Thompson asked both sides to offer suggestions about how to address the question. He gave both sides until 12:55 to come up with suggestions.

On June 13, 2011 the Dothan Police Department received a call

of an accident involving injuries at the intersection of West Main

Street and John D. Odom Road. Police were told one vehicle

involved in the accident left the scene and was east bound on

West Main Street.

Law enforcement officers located the vehicle in a parking lot

on West Main Street and called for negotiators when the

suspect exited the vehicle holding a gun to his head. Before

officers could speak with the suspect he got back into his

vehicle and left continuing east bound on Main Street.

A high speed pursuit began and continued north onto Ross

Clark Circle. The pursuit came to an end in the 3400 block of

Ross Clark Circle after a deputy initiated a pit maneuver forcing

the suspect vehicle off of the roadway.

The patrol car additionally left the roadway and came to rest in a

median beside the suspect vehicle. The suspect brandished a

handgun after which gunfire was exchanged. The deputy involved

in stopping the pursuit was initially pinned in his vehicle and

sustained injuries for which he has been treated and released

by a local hospital. The suspect was also transported to a local

hospital after being shot during the incident. The suspect

succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced deceased

by medical staff at 10:35 p.m.

The suspect has been identified Jason Alan Arsenault, white male,

30 years of age, of Newton Alabama. The Alabama Bureau of

Investigation responded to the scene and has been requested to

handle the investigation by the Dothan Police Department and

Houston County Sheriffs Office.

 

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank

Houston County Sheriffs Office and the Alabama State

Troopers Office for their assistance with this case.
