Case against Alabama man expunged

Posted

The case against an Alabama man who allegedly fired a gun along Interstate 75 in November has been expunged.

Expungement means information about the arrest of Neil Edward Irby Jr., 19, of Satsuma, Ala., for reckless endangerment has been stricken from court records.

The incident in which Irby was arrested occurred on Nov. 12, 2016, according to a Cleveland Daily Banner article on the case.

At that time, the Bradley County Sheriff’s Department reported the Cleveland/Bradley County 911 Center received a call of a person inside a black vehicle shooting a firearm while traveling on the interstate. BCSO reports said the vehicle was reportedly stopped by a patrol deputy who observed it on Georgetown Road.

During the investigation by the sheriff’s department, a passenger who was occupying the vehicle told deputies a gun was fired at the ground by the driver, Irby, because a vehicle was driving recklessly around them on the interstate. Further investigation led to the discovery of a gun inside the vehicle.

Earlier, Bradley County General Sessions Court records showed the charge, a Class E felony, had been dismissed. The court now has no record of the case as it was expunged.

No one was reportedly hurt in the incident.
