BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — City leaders are asking a judge to make the owner of Good Friends Chinese & Seafood Restaurant turn in his passport so he’ll keep his April 22, 2014, court date.
Birmingham City Councilwoman Sheila Tyson sent a letter to Jefferson County District Attorney Brandon Falls expressing concern that Ching might post a high flight risk due to the seriousness of the charges against him.
Falls then sent a request to Judge Katrina Ross that would require Ching to surrender the passport.
Ching was arrested on Feb. 6 for firing a gun at a woman who complained after finding a roach in her egg roll. He faces an attempted murder charge.
He’s out of jail after posting a $100,000 bond.
