After being pulled over for an improper lane change, a sex offender wanted in Mobile for a sexual abuse charge was arrested in Boaz on Saturday.
Boaz Assistant Police Chief Walter Colbert said an officer first stopped the vehicle on U.S. Highway 431 and arrested the driver, Amanda Brooke Whitney, for possession of drug paraphernalia and illegal possession of prescription drugs. She was also issued a traffic citation.
The passenger, who officers later learned gave a false name, was also arrested for illegal possession of prescription drugs. He was later identified as Bradley Roosevelt White, a registered sex offender wanted in Mobile County for first degree sexual abuse.
White was additionally charged with false identity to obstruct justice and failure of a sex offender to provide documentation of identity. A hold was placed on White for the warrant in Mobile County.
Officers then charged Whitney with resisting arrest for failing to identify White.
The next day, a female, later identified as Mary Annette Parker, came to the police department using a false name and claimed to be White’s mother. But, she identified White with the false name he previously used. Colbert said Parker was arrested and charged with second degree hindering prosecution, obstructing governmental operations and giving false information.
