Selma Police arrest Stallworth, Armstrong sets $10 million bond

Published 10:49pm Monday, December 17, 2012

District Court Judge Bob Armstrong handed down two bonds on an individual one law enforcement official called “Selma’s most wanted individual.” That same official said the bonds levied Monday are a reflection of the violent crimes this suspect is charged.

Over the weekend, authorities arrested Jarron Stallworth and charged him with attempted murder when Stallworth and two others are alleged to have tried to retaliate for a fatal shooting on the 12oo block of Alabama Avenue, near the club Sugar Shack.

According to District Attorney Michael Jackson, Stallworth and two others went to a home where they believed Darrie Dewayne Dees was living on Aug. 3 to get retribution for Dees suspected shooting and killing of Joseph Senior.

At the home, Jackson said the group reportedly attempted to set the structure on fire. When the person living there came outside, the trio then allegedly opened fire on him. No one was injured in this incident.

Stallworth — who was on the run after being indicted on this charge — was taken into custody Sunday in GWC Homes on Martin Luther King Street.

Jackson said at the time officers attempted to arrest Stallworth he “got into a scuffle with the police and then spit on the officers.”

At Monday’s hearing, Armstrong placed a $5 million bond on Stallworth for the attempted murder charge. But, that wasn’t all.

Selma Police also charged Stallworth with first-degree assault for a December 2011 attack on an individual outside of Club 9000.

Stallworth was reportedly among those who attacked and beat Anthony Daniels, a witness in the murder trial involving Stallworth’s brother Tryone.

After being charged, Armstrong then placed an additional $5 million bond on Stallworth for the assault charge, bringing the total to $10 million.

“Based on the violent nature of the crimes and the suspect’s history, we had requested the high bonds and are pleased Judge Armstrong handed down the bonds he did,” Jackson said. “He was one of Selma’s most wanted.”
