The son of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore found himself in trouble with the law when he was arrested in Alabama for trespassing on someone’s property and accused of illegally hunting over bait.
According to ABC News, 27-year-old Caleb Moore turned himself into the Etowah County Sheriff’s department, where he was arrested on a third-degree criminal trespass charge. Moore was allegedly trespassing and hunting, and was also accused of hunting over a bait pile, which is still illegal in Alabama.
A spokeswoman for the Etowah County Sheriff’s department reportedly said Moore was ultimately released on $1,000 bond.
Roy Moore, Caleb’s father, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice, is facing Democrat Doug Jones in the special election for a seat on the U.S. Senate on December 12.
