MORGAN CO., Ala. (WAFF) - A man from Falkville was arrested in Washington D.C. on January 6 during the Capitol riots. Now, he’s asking for more time to make a plea agreement.

On September 1, Lonnie Coffman’s lawyers filed a motion requesting more time to make a decision whether or not Coffman will agree to make a plea deal. According to the documents, Coffman’s team of attorneys has reached an agreement but wants more time to formally file it.

September 1 was the original deadline for him to make the decision. But, the new motion proposes a new deadline of September 8.

Federal agents found multiple weapons inside Coffman’s truck and even homemade explosives. He was indicted on multiple weapons and molotov cocktail charges.
