Strange story involving Devonta Pollard's mom- Kidnapping?

Jesse Mae Pollard, a longtime teacher and mother of University of Alabama basketball player Devonta Pollard, appeared before a U.S. District Court judge today after she was charged in the kidnapping of a six-year-old girl in Kemper County, Miss.

An Amber alert was issued Wednesday for Jashayla Hopson, who was taken from her school in Scooba, Miss., Tuesday afternoon, and was canceled after Hopson was found Wednesday afternoon near Enterprise, Miss., around 2 p.m.

Jesse Mae Brown Pollard, 54, of Northport appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Keith Ball in Jackson, Miss., today. The court ruled to detain Pollard pending action by a federal grand jury based on probable cause.

In the criminal complaint filed today, an FBI agent in the Jackson, Miss., office, presented an affidavit with a timeline of the investigation. In it, he writes that investigators talked to Pollard about a "dispute" she had with Hopson's mother.

Okay... now this makes me wonder if Pollard is gonna want to stick around with this going on.

The team might be the best thing for Devonta right now, particularly if this situation isn't resolved quickly.

First, and most importantly it is great to hear that the little girl is ok. Pollard's car being searched makes me curious to find out more details. This story is not over. I feel bad for Pollard, as he is really close to his mother, and has gone through more off the court stuff than I can possibly imagine.
