Shooting Victim Says Person Charged Is "The Wrong Man"

Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - by Hollie Webb

Assault charges against a defendant were dismissed Wednesday in General Sessions Court when the victim testified that the person charged was "the wrong man."

When the accused, Alvin Frederique, was brought in, he told Judge Clarence Shattuck that he was not guilty. 

The victim, Teddy Terry, agreed that Frederique was not the man who shot at him. Frederique said he had "never seen (Terry) in my life."

Police responded to a call from Terry on Oct. 11. Officiers said that after they arrived, Terry told them he had been driving north on Arlington Avenue when a man driving south suddenly cut in front of his vehicle. 

He said a man then jumped out and fired a .40 caliber gun at his windshield; he was still in the driver's seat. Terry said when the man started coming toward him, he jumped out of his car. Terry told police that the man said he was going to take Terry's wheels and then shot in the direction of his feet. Terry was not injured, but bullets and shell casings were later found on the street.

Frederique matched the description of the perpetrator and was arrested on an outstanding warrant. After both men said they did not know each other, Judge Shattuck dismissed the charge. 

Both Frederique and Terry have lengthy rap sheets.

Police Need To Stop The Road Cowboys - And Response (2)

Where is our highway patrol?  If they were known to regularly patrol our interstate highways through our city I don't think it would take long before the "truckers" were aware of it.  There are places in our country where this is the case.   When I have traveled Interstates 24 and 75 I may see the occasional car pulled over but rarely if ever is it an 18-wheeler. ...

Roy Exum: Never Disturb The Dead

I’ve got too many things in my life that scare me so I’ve always been real leery of “unnecessary fear.” A guy named Terry wanted to teach me how to catch a live rattlesnake one time but had a tough time telling me what exactly to do with the angry serpent when the time came to let it go. I have the same view of these paranormal societies where otherwise sane people go around looking ... (click for more)
