The Huntsville Police Department has released the name of the man charged in the murder of Huntsville STAC Agent Billy Clardy III in the line of duty on Friday.
LaJeromeny Brown is charged with capital murder. Police say he shot and killed Clardy during a drug investigation on Friday.
Court documents show Brown has a lengthy past with the criminal justice system.
That includes, in part:
On March 7, 2018, Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Poole filed a Petition for a Warrant arguing that Brown violated his parole by 1) committing another crime and 2) leaving the jurisdiction of his parole without permission.
According to Poole's petition, Brown was arrested on March 1, 2018, in Laredo, Texas, and was charged with Felon in Possession of a Firearm. According to that document, he was flagged down by Border Patrol Agents in Laredo.
Then on October 9, 2018, Poole filed another petition for a warrant stating that Brown committed another crime. In this instance, he states that on October 5, 2018, Chattanooga Police issued warrants for Brown's arrest on the charges of:
* Aggravated Robbery
* Aggravated Burglary
* Aggravated Kidnapping
* Impersonating a Police Officer
