Son of Alabama chief justice charged with drug possession
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – The son of Alabama’s chief justice _ who has made national headlines recently for his efforts to block gay marriage in the state _ has been arrested on drug charges.
Court records show 24-year-old Caleb Moore, the son of Chief Justice Roy Moore, was arrested Sunday in Troy and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.
Police, responding to a complaint of a possible break-in, found Caleb Moore and four other men near a white pick-up truck. A police report says an officer smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle, where he found marijuana and Xanax pills on top of a wallet containing Caleb Moore’s passport.
Moore is perhaps best known for being removed from office after he refused to remove Ten Commandments monument from the state Supreme Court building.
