MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A man once acquitted of murder in Baldwin County will remain in Mobile Metro Jail after being arrested for receiving stolen property.
"After testimony in the new case, Judge York revoked his bond in the old cases," said defense attorney Joe Altadonna.
That new case is for receiving stolen property. As we've been reporting, Buzbee was arrested in May . When he was arrested on that charge, he had several cases pending before a grand jury, so the state asked that he stay behind bars.
In the hearing, we heard new details about what happened when a port authority officer found an unoccupied truck that came back as stolen in Baldwin County. The officer testified soon after he found the truck, Eric Buzbee showed up with gas for the vehicle.
At first, the officer said Buzbee didn't admit being the driver, then changed his story. Buzbee's attorney said it's not what it seems.
"I can tell you that I'm not sure from the testimony that I heard whether the case will rise to the level of a receiving case that remains to be seen," said Altadonna.
The port authority officer said Buzbee told him he was trying to drive to Texas, but ran out of money in Louisiana and turned around and came back. The fact that Buzbee said he left the state, was one of the main factors in the judge's decision to revoke bond.
Testimony revealed that the truck belonged to a man Buzbee had been doing work for.
Buzbee is back in metro jail, a preliminary hearing has been set for later this month.
Buzbee was tried three times for the murder of Spanish Fort service station owner Bobby Wilson and eventually acquitted. Since, he's been arrested eight times in Mobile and Baldwin Counties.
