MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Mobile teenager who served as juvenile court king at this year's Mardi Gras celebrations is facing a first-degree robbery charge.

Officer Eric Gallichant, a Mobile Police spokesman, said officers arrested 18-year-old Timothy Gerald Hall Junior on Sunday and charged him in connection with Saturday night's robbery of a Dairy Queen restaurant.

Hall, the son of a Mobile municipal judge, was freed after posting a $10,000 bond.

Gallichant said Hall's alleged accomplice, Jajuan Holmes, also 18, also was taken into custody, but he was charged with three counts of first-degree robbery.

Gallichant said the additional charges against Holmes stem from two separate armed robberies of businesses in the downtown area that occurred earlier on Saturday.
