MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Hammad Memon's father was released from the Metro Jail after posting bond sometime Saturday morning. 

Madison Police arrested Dr. Iqbal Memon at his home Friday night and charged with hindering prosecution.

Police in Dallas, Texas arrested 16-year-old Hammad Memon and his mother just hours after a Madison County judge revoked his bond in his murder case. 

At a news conference Friday night, prosecutors said police found Memon and his mother after a cell phone company pinged their cell phone. This led them to their whereabouts on a sidewalk in Dallas.

Both ran and were captured after a short chase. Police said Memon ran into a business and tried to hide in a restroom before he was captured.

Prosecutors say both were found in possession of Pakistani passports and a significant amount of cash. Memon's mother is also charged with hindering prosecution.

The nationwide manhunt for Memon started after the Madison County District Attorney's office got word that Memon's mother received a package in the mail Wednesday from Pakistan's Embassy, which appeared to contain a passport.

Memon has dual citizenship in Pakistan and the U.S.

Earlier Friday, Memon's Attorney Bruce Gardner dismissed the idea that his client was trying to run although he admitted he did not know of his client's whereabouts.

Gardner is preparing to represent Memon during his June 18 trial for the 2010 murder of Todd Brown at Discovery Middle School.

Madison County Assistant District Attorney Tim Gann said he doesn't expect new charges against Memon at this time.

The District Attorney's office is now working to bring Memon and his mother back to Alabama.

Gann said Hammad Memon has two options regarding his return. He could either waive extradition or fight it.

Waiving extradition would prompt the District Attorney's office and Madison Police to go to Dallas and escort Memon back to Alabama, according to Gann.

Gann said there is a possibility Memon will fight his return back home, in which case a governor's warrant will be sent to the state of Texas for Memon's extradition.

Either way, Gann said Memon will be brought back to Madison County for his murder trial in June.

His mother would be extradited by the sheriff's department, according to Gann.

An exact date on their return to Alabama is undetermined at this time. Gann said the sheriff's department expects to file extradition paperwork on Monday.
