Alabama police officer arrested for murder www.privateofficer.com
A 22-year-old Birmingham man charged with murder in a Friday morning Irondale shooting death has been a Brighton police officer for about a year, Brighton Mayor Angelo Hinkle said tonight.
Chevis Finley was booked into the Jefferson County Jail Friday night on $75,000 bond. Hinkle said Finley is on unpaid administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.
Lt. Norman Stapp of the Irondale Police Department on Friday said Finley and the victim, Brodrick Rashad Dixon, 27, of Helena were visiting a woman at the Enclave at Mountain Brook apartments.
Dixon was shot several times at 3:15 a.m. Friday outside the 1100 building at Sharpsburg Circle.
Hinkle said he was not aware of Finley having any disciplinary problems. “As far as I know, he’s been an excellent officer,” Hinkle said.
Finley was released on bond on Monday, according to court records. A hearing has been scheduled in Jefferson County District Judge Sheldon Watkins’ court on June 15.
