'Selma's Most Wanted' captured, hit with $10 Million bond | Crime
SELMA, AL (WSFA) - The man whose "string of violent crimes" earned him the nickname "Selma's Most Wanted Individual" has been captured and placed in the Dallas County Detention Center with an immense bond according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.
Jarron Stallworth, wanted for attempted murder, robbery and assault first degree, was taken into custody on Sunday at the GWC Homes on Martin Luther King Street after a scuffle with police where he spit in the face of an arresting officer.
In a bond hearing on Monday, District Court Judge Bob Armstrong set Stallworth's bond at $10 Million.
Stallworth was given $5 Million bond for the Aug. 3 incident where he and two others allegedly attempted to retaliate after the shooting death of Stallworth's relative Joseph Senior. Senior was supposedly shot and killed by a man identified as Darrie Dewayne Dees. DA Jackson says Stallworth and two other men went to Dees' residence in August, unscrewed the outside light bulb on the home, attempted to set the home on fire and waited for Dees to blindly stumble outside. When Dees exited the residence, Jackson said Stallworth opened fire. Dees was not injured during the incident. A warrant was issued against Stallworth for attempted murder.
Stallworth is also charged with assault first degree in connection with the December 2011 attack on Anthony Daniels outside of Club 9000 in Selma. Stallworth and others allegedly beat Daniels who served as a witness in a murder trial involving Stallworth's brother Tyrone.
Judge Armstrong also handed down a $5 Million bond for the assault charge taking Stallworth's total to $10 Million.
"He's had all these violent cases," said Jackson. "And they've been looking for him. This is the second time he's skipped town. Given his history, that's why they call him Selma's Most Wanted."
Jackson went on to add, "He won't be going anywhere for a while."
