Caleb Moore, the son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, was arrested for drug possession on Sunday in Troy. He was also charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of marijuana.
According to court documents, Caleb Moore, 24, was arrested after officers responded to the 1200 block of Allen Street on an attempted home break-in call. He was with four other men. Officers found a bag of marijuana, several Xanax pills in the glove compartment of the truck.
Caleb Moore was released on $8500 bond and his first court appearance is set for April 7.
Caleb Moore railed in a Facebook post about the charges that his critics were out to destroy his father. He also blamed the media and the police for his actions:
“This is nothing more than a prime example of how media and crooked police officers and critics of my dad try to not only destroy his career for what he stands for but will go as far as trying to destroy his family,” he wrote. “I am not a drug user as the drug test taken today will show. As for the malicious possession charges, justice will be served.”
