MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - A preliminary hearing was scheduled Wednesday, June 5 for Eric Buzbee's most recent arrest.
The repeat offender pleaded not guilty to charges of receiving stolen property.
Buzbee already has several cases pending with the grand jury, which is why he was out on bond when police when he was arrested by Port Authority officers.
Due to that circumstance, the Mobile County District Attorney's Office has asked that Buzbee's bond be revoked.
"He was out on bond when he got this new charge, and they're trying to revoke his bond. At this point, we're going to see what we have," said defense attorney Joe Altadonna.
Buzbee was charged in the murder of well-known Spanish Fort service station owner Bobby Wilson. He was tried three times and ultimately acquitted. Since then he has been arrested eight times both in Mobile and Baldwin counties.
A preliminary hearing for the receiving stolen property charge was set for June 24.
The bond issue will be revisited in another hearing set for Tuesday, June 11.
According to online jail records, Buzbee has been arrested before on charges of burglary, unlawful breaking and entering, and possession of a controlled substance.
