The jury trial of Darren Huff on charges of carrying a firearm in interstate commerce with the intent to use it in a civil disorder and using a firearm in relation to another felony begins in Knoxville, Tennessee, today. Huff will be defended by Knoxville attorney G. Scott Green.
Huff was traveling to Madisonville, Tennessee in possession of an AK-47 assault rifle that he allegedly admitted was intended to take over the city and make citizens arrests in support of birther Walter Fitzpatrick III. (Fitzpatrick was charged with trying to force his way into a grand jury room to intimidate the foreman in retaliation for the foreman’s refusal to consider Fitzpatrick’s papers claiming Barack Obama is not eligible to be president).
Huff describes himself as a member of the Georgia militia and the “Oath Keepers” group (both of whom have reportedly kicked him out).
