The suspect was transported to the Tuscaloosa Police Department and then to DCH for self-inflicted injuries to his foot. Once he is released from DCH he will be placed in the Tuscaloosa County Jail pending a $4,500.00 Bond. Holds were placed on him for Pickens County Sheriff’s Office and Coaling Police Department for outstanding warrants. The officer involved in the accident was not injured.
