Chase suspect charged with attempted murder

Posted: Updated:

Marshall County sheriff's deputies arrested an Albertville man for attempted murder after he was released from the hospital for a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Eric Daniel Warden, 24, led deputies on two chases as they were investigating him for shooting a man in the leg earlier this year. He fled into a wooded area and escaped after a chase on January 31.

In February, deputies attempted to stop Warden again, but he shot himself in the head as deputies approached his truck. He was transported to Huntsville Hospital.

After he recovered, deputies arrested him and booked him into the Marshall County Jail.

He was charged with first degree assault and attempted murder. His bond was set at $100,000.
