A Birmingham man, 29, was arrested after an overnight hunt, US 280


A Birmingham man was arrested early Thursday morning following a search involving a US 280 closure.

The incident began around 12:46 a.m. when a Shelby County sheriff’s officer stopped a traffic stop on Meadowbrook Broad on US 280. When confronted by a deputy driver, sheriff’s officers spotted the rifle in the deputy’s car and fled in the driver’s vehicle.

There was a suspicious wreck on the bowling drive.

When the deputy put out the wreckage, he believed the driver was inside the vehicle with the rifle. Shelby County Deputies, along with Hoover Police, conducted a “High Risk Vehicle Stop” where the driver thought the driver was unresponsive.

At that time, US 280 was temporarily closed in both directions to reduce the risk to the public.

The Shelby County Multi-Jurisdictional Special Operations Group responded to the incident site and was able to drive the car with a special purpose vehicle and determine if the driver had already fled. The rifle was found inside an abandoned vehicle.

Authorities have located the suspect at a nearby residence on Stonecrest Drive in Birmingham.

Agencies that assisted in the search included Hoover, Helena and Alabaster, and the Kahaba Valley Fire and Rescue Police.

The driver has been identified as 19-year-old Tadarius Hammond. He was arrested on charges of attempting to avoid multiple traffic violations and law enforcement.

No injuries were reported.

Hammond is currently being held at the Shelby County Jail on $ 7,500 bond.
