This is not Bigham's first brush with the law. In June, he was arrested on charges of reckless driving. Accused of driving at speeds of over 80 mph in a 35 mph zone, Bigham was in an accident, injuring himself and two others. In that case, Bigham turned himself in to Trussville City Jail, where he was later released on a $1,000 bond.
