Albertville man arrested for giving false statement in fatal rollover


GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities have charged a Marshall County man with lying to investigators about a pickup truck wreck that killed four people.

District Attorney Steve Marshall says 20-year-old Adrian Michael Renteria of Albertville was one of the people riding in the truck at the time of the wreck last Sunday

Marshall says Renteria is being charged because his account of the crash doesn’t match evidence found during an investigation.

The man is charged with making a false report and obstructing government operations.

State troopers say nine people were riding in a pickup that flipped and caught fire on U.S. 431 near Guntersville. Four people ranging in age from 13 to 21 were killed.

Court records aren’t yet available online to show whether Renteria has a lawyer.
