Caleb Moore, 24, the son of controversial Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, was arrested on drug charges Sunday. Upon his release he wrote on his Facebook wall that the media was trying to get back at his father for Moore’s staunch opposition to same-sex marriage.
Police, responding to a complaint of a possible break-in, found Caleb Moore and four other men near a white pick-up truck. A police report says an officer smelled marijuana and searched the vehicle, where he found marijuana and Xanax pills on top of a wallet containing Caleb Moore’s passport.
Moore was released on $8,500 bail. Then came this doozy, which Moore set to “public” on his Facebook feed:
Roy Moore was ousted from his seat a decade ago when he refuse to obey a federal order that he remove a stone monument of the Ten Commandments from his court room. He most recently made headlines when he ordered Alabama probate judges to refuse to issue same-sex marriage licenses after an Alabama judge overturned the state’s gay marriage ban. The Supreme Court declined to intervene, leaving Alabama justices caught between the highest justice of their state and the highest court of the land.
Caleb Moore’ previous Facebook post was in support of his father’s position against same-sex marriage.
