A man is in jail after Tuscumbia police say he went to the home of the judge on his case with a gun.
Police said the incident happened on Tuesday.
A man named Brad Adderhold went to Tuscumbia's municipal judge’s personal law office with a gun looking for Judge Chad Smith, according to police.
Smith was not at his personal law office, and police say Adderhold led them on a chase that ended in Muscle Shoals.
Tuscumbia police are working on charges to add to Adderhold. He's currently in the Tuscumbia City Jail for a suspended sentence.
Police believe Smith was targeted by Adderhold because he was the judge in his case.
Mayor Kerry Underwood said of the incident “I was relieved to see a more peaceful end to this situation than how it started. The amount of coordination between sister cities and law enforcement agencies was astounding.”
