Trial Begins in Courthouse Seizure Plot

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A jury is to be picked in Knoxville for the federal trial of a Georgia militia supporter charged with traveling with weapons to support citizens’ arrests of judges and other officials at a Tennessee courthouse.
Records show 41-year-old Darren Wesley Huff of Dallas, Ga., traveled in April 2010 to the Monroe County Courthouse with a handgun, an AK-47 and ammunition after telling FBI agents about the plan.
Huff was supporting a Monroe County activist who in a warrant had declared the officials to be “domestic enemies.”
Huff and his attorney, Scott Green of Knoxville, have declined comment ahead of Tuesday’s trial.
Huff is charged with 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.
