Another Briles in the Pokey!

Keeping with tradition of reporting the good, the bad, and the ugly news...yet another Briles has landed in the clink! This one hits closer to home, but we intend on being fair and balanced when it comes to family information. Reitzel Alan Briles Jr. was arrested Tuesday, September 27, 2011 for a variety of drugs charges in Asheboro, NC along with Tracey Smith. Official charges for Briles is maintaining a dwelling place for a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of trafficking in marijuana, however the bond was set low at $7,500. Smith's bond was set at $500.

It's been a busy month for Briles in the news. Earlier this month, Sloane Briles was charged with child endangerment for tossing his son off of a touring boat! We can't control what our kids do after they leave the nest so we shall provide this link if you want to view Reitzel's lineage and we hope he receives due and fair process!

Sloane Briles Charged!

Ok folks I've waited two days before posting this story which has made national news. When I first saw the story I immediately checked the databases, Rootsweb, and other sources to see what lineage Sloane Briles came from and to find out the true story. Everyone, including Briles, is innocent till proven guilty in a court of law and I even reached out to Sloane on Facebook with no response...I guess the BIN is low on the talk circuit list!

Briles is accused of tossing his 7 year old son off of a 42-foot tour boat in Santa Ana, California. With multiple witness and a confession from Briles, it's hard to imagine what the hell he was thinking...and for the record, I'm not sure if I want to know what line Briles originated from! Stealing a line from FOX, we report, you decide!
