BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Youth evangelist Matt Pitt was in court today for a preliminary hearing to decide if there is enough evidence against him to go to trial. Pitt faces several charges including impersonating a peace officer.
FOX6 News learned shortly before 5 p.m. that the case will be bound over to a grand jury.
Pitt arrived at the courthouse around 10:30 a.m. Monday and appeared before Judge Katrina Ross. The hearing ended a little after noon, and the judge did not issue a ruling.
Jefferson County authorities charged Pitt with impersonating a peace officer in August. He faced a similar charge in Shelby County in 2012 and pleaded guilty.
Pitt's cousin also testified about being with Pitt on June 15 when he produced the badge. The cousin said Pitt never presented himself as a police officer.
The cousin said he and Pitt had been riding four-wheelers late into the night and left the four-wheelers and a BB gun in the woods. When they returned the next day to retrieve the BB gun and four wheelers, the cousin said someone in the neighborhood had found the gun and the ATVs nearby.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says Pitt showed the resident a badge and presented himself as a law enforcement officer after the resident questioned what they were doing in the woods.
