Roy Moore’s son arrested for the 8th time

Embattled Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore gets a standing ovation from supporters as he arrives for his ethics trial at the Alabama Court of the Judiciary at the Alabama Judicial Building in Montgomery, Ala., on Wednesday September 28, 2016.

Caleb Moore, son of suspended Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, was arrested over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend – his eighth arrest in the last five years.

Caleb Moore’s mugshot and booking information were posted on the Gadsden Times website, as part of the usual arrest photos local newspapers publish. However, Moore’s photo carried no information about the charges against him. A call to the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office seeking information about the arrest was not returned.

A source familiar with the arrest told APR on Sunday that Moore had been arrested for trespassing and hunting without a license.

It is the latest in a long line of arrests for the 25-year-old, dating back to 2013, when he was arrested for third-degree domestic violence in Troy.

A few months later, he was arrested in St. Clair County on possession of drug paraphernalia and given a three-month suspended sentence. He was also ordered to attend a drug rehab clinic, where he later tested positive for drug use. A judge ruled he met the conditions of his treatment plan.

In 2014, he was arrested twice – in both Florida and Alabama — for driving under the influence and on drug possession charges in Baldwin County.

In 2015, he was arrested again for drug possession, this time in Troy. Those charges were dropped when he entered a pre-trial diversion program.

In all, despite multiple DUI arrests and three arrests on drug-related charges, Caleb Moore has never been sentenced to jail time.
