The son of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore was arrested in Alabama on a misdemeanor charge linked to allegations of illegal hunting. No big deal, right? Except that this arrest marks the ninth time the 27-year-old has been in jail.
Etowah County Sheriff‘s spokeswoman Natalie Barton told news outlets Caleb Moore surrendered last month on a charge of third-degree criminal trespass. He was accused of hunting without permission and hunting over bait last year.
Moore was released on $1,000 bond and the Judge’s campaign issued a statement calling the arrest a
“cheap political trick.”
Caleb was arrested on drug charges in 2015, but those were dropped after he entered a pre-trial diversion program.
Roy Moore has just been accused of assaulting a 14 year-old when he was 32. He also called those accusations a cheap political trick.
