HOLLYWOOD, Ala. — The Hollywood Police Department arrested a Fyffe man yesterday that shot at a police officer after a brief manhunt.
An officer with the Hollywood Police Department attempted to pull over Michael Cody of Fyffe (initial reports say Fort Payne, but the Jackson County Sheriff's Office lists his residence as Fyffe) late Wednesday night, near the back gate of the Bellefonte Nuclear Generating Station for a minor traffic violation. Cody sped off.
"He crashed into a guardrail, and the officer pinned him in," said Hollywood Police Chief Jason Hepler.
Cody fled on foot, but not after firing several shots at the officer. The officer was uninjured. A brief manhunt ensued, with Cody being apprehended in the early morning hours of May 18.
Cody is currently being held on $150,300.oo bond in the Jackson County Jail. He's charged with two counts of attempted murder, and one count of fleeing to elude a police officer.
