Accused Drunk Driver Kills Three In Huntsville

Huntsville police say a drunk driver in the wrong lane of I-565 killed three people early Thursday. The driver plowed into an SUV killing all three inside — a young mother, her 3 year old son and another man who was 21. They arrested 22-year-old Carai Cortez — charging him with three counts of murder plus drunk driving and driving on the wrong side of the road. His injuries were not serious.

Caught With 100 Stolen Credit Cards

Using stolen credit cards — a lot of them. A 22-year-old woman had more than 100 stolen cards when she was caught in Jefferson county. She’s identified as Dazshona Williams, from N.C.

Police got a call from a bank that a stolen card was being used at a Publix in Hoover. When police got there, the woman was gone. But they got her picture on store security video. Then, with some smart detective work — they figured she’d try to hit another Publix. They were right. She went to the Publix on Valleydale and police caught her and a nearby gas station.

School Bus Driver Accused Of Driving While High

Not what parents want to hear: school bus driver on drugs.
That’s the story in Madison county, a school bus driver arrested for driving the bus while high on something according to State Troopers. 40 year old James Watwood arrested early yesterday after running of the road and hitting a mail box with the bus. No one hurt. He’s charged with driving under the influence of a prescription drug. It’s embarrassing for Madison schools because it turns out Watwood had a prior record — pleading guilty back in 2010 for possession of pain pills. Madison County Schools Superintendent did not take questions from reporters but issued a statement saying Watwood quit and his actions are not acceptable, but the superintendant did not say if the schools had checked his background and or if they knew about Watwood’s prior drug conviction before letting him drive a bus.

Plenty Of Pot Found In Heflin Traffic Stop

Heflin Police bagged alot of pot during a traffic stop. Vehicle stopped for a moving violation, a passenger used a phony name, and police found a stolen gun in his waistband which is illegal because he’s a convicted felon. Then, the driver agreed to a search and officers found just over 40 pounds of pot. Names of the men not given — they’re locked up on bond over a million dollars.
