Sheriff: Man brings gun into Colbert Co. Courthouse

Posted: Updated:

A Harvest man was arrested in Tuscumbia for bringing a gun into the Colbert County Courthouse.

Authorities said Hildred Burwell II had a 9 a.m. court time on a protection from order Wednesday, but failed to show up.

At 10 a.m., deputies said Burwell II appeared with a stack of papers with a 9mm handgun underneath. He was immediately taken into custody.

Burwell II was charged with possession of a firearm in the courthouse and carrying a pistol without a permit.

The previous version of this story incorrectly identified the defendant at Hildred Burwell not Huldred Burwell II. Hildred Burwell, the father of Burwell II had no involvement in this incident.
