SOUTHSIDE, ALABAMA - A Southside police officer was arrested Friday, charged with two misdemeanors for allegedly failing to report a sexual abuse crime.
Patrolman Brent Holloway has been on leave with pay since Tuesday, Police Chief Tim Diggs said.
Holloway, 37, was arrested by Etowah County Sheriff’s Department deputies and an investigator at his home in Southside just before 6 p.m.
He is charged with second-degree hindering prosecution and failure to report child abuse, both misdemeanors.
The Southside Police Department referred the investigation to the Sheriff’s Department, Diggs said, after it was discovered on Feb. 14 that Holloway failed to report that he knew about an alleged sex crime involving a relative.
The Police Department was contacted by the Barrie Center for Children after a juvenile victim was interviewed there.
In the course of the interview, it was discovered that the suspect was related to Holloway, who knew about the alleged crime, Diggs said

I knew this family. I knew this officer. Whether or not he knew about what had happened, or if he did, why he didn't report it, i don't know. I'm sure he had his reasons. But this police officer is one of the nicest i've ever come across that has been employed by southside alabama, other than their deputy cheif chris jones...he's aight. But do keep this family in your prayers, all who view this, whether you think bad of him or not, he's still a person, and we all make mistakes. He didn't do what was accused to the "child", a family member did. So please, pray for this family.

YOU THINK LOOKING THE OTHER WAY WHILE SOMETHING LIKE THIS IS GOING ON IS ANY BETTER THAN WHAT IS GOING ON? GET REAL! JUST BECAUSE HE WAS OR IS A POLICE OFFICER DOESN'T PUT HIM ABOVE THE LAW. YOU WOULD BE THROWING THE BOOK AT WHOEVER WAS ACCUSED OF THE SEX CRIME YELLING, "GIVE'EM THE CHAIR! GIVE'EM THE CHAIR!" BUT WHEN IT'S SOMEONE YOU KNOW, OR BETTER YET, A POLICE OFFICER, YOU SUDDENDLY HAVE MERCY? YOU PATHETIC HYPOCRITE! I HATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU!

Officer Holloway's son was accused of attempted rape of his first cousin. Now does this change your mind about prayers for the family?
