Deputies Call Out Sheriff For Suspicious Actions During A Drug Bust

Former Winston county deputies Zak Green and Steven Moody are suing to get their jobs back as Alabama deputies. Their suit claims they were dismissed after Sheriff Hobby Walker asked them to get him more weed after a bust. They have also given state and FBI investigators a cellphone video of Walker asking them to “peel a little off” during their arrest.

According to former deputy Green, Walker took marijuana seized as evidence for his sick aunt during a meeting in May of 2015 and slid it into his desk drawer.

Green said “I showed it to him and he slid it across the desk and put it in a drawer and told me, ‘Thank you,’ and I said, ‘No sir, I’ve got to have it for court.’ Then he proceeded to tell me, he said, ‘Well I need you to get me some.’ I said, ‘Like make more cases?’ and he said, ‘No, I need you to get me some, I’ve got somebody that needs it that’s sick.'"

Green recorded the conversation on his cellphone. Walker can be heard saying “I need a little bit of dope, OK? I’ve been trying to get one ever since I’ve been in office and this has been going on eight months. The woman’s gonna die before I — you know?”

When the deputies took their concerns to the local district attorney's office, they were dismissed in November. The sheriff said he was testing them.

Moody stated “It’s kind of embarrassing and it was very shocking at the same time. It was embarrassing for him to think I would stoop low enough to create a criminal act because of my position and then from there just dumbfounded to think a new sheriff was just testing his employee. What a way to test somebody.”

Sheriff Walker told WBRC, “I’d rather you talk to my attorney about all this because if it goes to court or anything you know how that is.”
