Self proclaimed militia member goes on trial today

The trial for one of the members of the "free militia" is expected to begin today in Birmingham.

Michael Wayne Bobo was one of six men arrested in April during a federal sting operation.

Homes in Collinsville and Crossville, in DeKalb County along with homes in Etowah and Jefferson Counties were searched by federal agents.

Several of Bobo's co- defendants have already pleaded guilty to weapons charges.

Their group is described as an anti-government and anti-Mexican militia.
