More charges for William Travis Tucker of Alabama

| December 5, 2020

We talked about this guy just a few days ago when he was arrested on stolen valor (among other) charges in Colbert County, Alabama. His tall tales include a Silver Star, a Purple Heart, and having spent time as a prisoner of war.

ninja sends an update. When his time came to enter a plea, he went with a not guilty plea and was released on $8,000 bail/bond. He was then arrested on similar charges by Lauderdale County. They have some video of him making his wild claims while he solicits money here.

A Shoals man is out of jail after being charged again with stolen valor after authorities say he lied about being a prisoner of war.

William Travis Tucker’s newest arrest comes in Lauderdale County where he is charged with forgery, theft, stolen valor, possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. Deputies searched his home Thursday.

Tucker got out on a $10,000 bond at about noon Friday. WAAY 31 spoke with the investigator in the Lauderdale County case and uncovered video of Tucker giving a speech about being a prisoner of war.

The video was given to WAAY 31 by a source and shows Tucker in May 2019 at Spring Park in Tuscumbia giving a speech to a group of people about being a prisoner of war. He starts off shaking the hands of fellow veterans and says ‘let me tell you a story about a soldier I knew.’

“He was captured in Pakistan on March 10 in 2002, strapped naked to a chair for 72 hours and sexually molested by three men,” said Tucker in the video.

Tucker pauses appearing to get choked up.

“I was able to escape with all means necessary,” said Tucker in the video.

He then prompts the group to buy raffle tickets to benefit Wounded Warriors. It’s unclear if they ever saw a dime from Tucker. It’s that same lie that now has Tucker in more hot water, according to law enforcement officials.

“He presented a forged document to the Lauderdale County License Commission office to get a POW tag that he was not even eligible for. By doing this, he defrauded the government of tax money,” said Lauderdale County Investigator, Matt Burbank.

  1. US valor thief arrested twice in one week – The Military | December 5, 2020

    Another strike against the lying, embellishing POS William Travis Tucker. We know for a fact that he was NOT a POW, and we are pretty damn sure that he did NOT serve in combat. Maybe he considers his time in the local county lockup as being a POW? And the sexual molesting from 3 men? That would have been Bubba, Thor, and Julio not having the common courtesy to at least give him a reach around.

    But is it molesting when the supposed victim enjoys it?

    We still have a motion for a deployment of the HoI on the other thread for this tool. ChipNASA is standing by a’waiting on a SECOND and an AYE.

      Hmmmm…Great minds think alike…I alluded to the same thought process in my comment…

      P.S. The ninja family just finished polishing off KoB’s recipe for the Sausage/Egg/Cheese/Biscuit/Sausage Gravy casserole. It was a hit. The same with AW1Ed’s Chicken/Cheese/Brocolli casserole. Two yummy meals in one week.

      Just getting ready for next week’s game when the Mule will kick the Goat’s behinny for big WIN…

        ^WORD^ ninja! There’s another recipe out there from the selection that is sausage, grits, eggs, and cheese that is off the chain. Can’t remember if I sent that one to AW1Ed too, for forwarding to Ex. He may be rat-holing that one for himself. The boy must really be stretched out, he has been awfully quiet of late in reference to the upcoming goat whooping. There has even been shots fired across his bow in re of a certain motion picture with ZERO response. If I didn’t know he was so involved, I might feel slighted by being prignored. (pre-ignored, the act of ignoring anything previous)

        It will be interesting to see the lying embellishing POS William Travis Tucker’s FOIA/records. Attaining SSG with only 4 years service is nothing to sneeze at. And why get out at that point in time and rank? Curiouser and curiouser. But then again, dirtbags gonna dirtbag.

        Gotta wonder, too, if the choking up came from something that Mr. “Tiny” fed him.

        Hot wings, assorted chips, pizza, and ham stuffed cat heads on the preliminary snack menu for next week’s game. A heaping serving of crow will be available for our Nautically inclined brethren/sistren.

      He sure does have a need to let us know what his fantasies are, doesn’t he?

      I’m sure a good therapist with a whip and some chains could cure his personal issues very quickly.

    Thank You for posting, Mason.

    First time I have read of someone being arrested TWICE in less than a week in two different Alabama counties for the same reason: Claiming POW status.

    According to this link, William Travis Tucker of Florence, Alabama DID SERVE in the US Army:

    “Man Charged With Stolen Valor Arrested In Lauderdale County For String of Charges”:

    https://www.waff.com/2020/12/03/man-charged-with-fraud-stolen-valor-arrested-lauderdale-county-string-charges/

    “Tucker is an Army Veteran. However, he’s accused of embellishing his service for personal gain.”

    “WAFF reached out to Army Public Affairs. According to officials from the office, Tucker served from 1999 to 2003 in the rank of staff Sergeant.”

    “While we’re told he did receive several awards, none of those were a POW medal.”

    In one week, Williams or someone else forked out $18,000 Bail money for him, which may be more than the money he tried to con out of folks for those raffle tickets that he claimed were going to benefit Wounded Warriors.

    *Sigh*…Dude has ZERO imagination when it comes to fabricating his POW story. Wonder if his story was really a secret fantasy?

    “He was captured in Pakistan on March 10 in 2002, strapped naked to a chair for 72 hours and sexually molested by three men,” said Tucker in the video.”

    “Tucker pauses appearing to get choked up.”

    “I was able to escape with all means necessary,” said Tucker in the video.”

    Maybe he will get to have that “fantasy”, (i.e. strapped naked to a jail while being sexually molested by 3 men) come true while serving time in either a State Pen or Jail…Time Will Tell…

    Dude has guts claiming POW status as well as receiving a Purple Heart and Silver Star AND submitting forged documents to obtain POW Plates for his automobile.

    Bet he will claim PTSD to either be found “innocent” or obtain a lighter sentence..

    BTW, this is not his first rodeo. Williams has had previous arrests in Alabama. He definitely needs help mental wise.

    While some run to the sound of battle, William Travis Tucker runs to the sound of banjos. Never fearing, his beard provides cushion when Bubba and friends start their pushin’.

  4. Roh-Dog says:

    This guy looks like a card-carrying member of the “Hey, this drink tastes funny” Club, I’ve been wrong before but I’m giving 5:1 odds. Takers?
    Rotten Cherry Syndrome in full effect!

  5. ninja says:

    William Travis Tucker should had filed a Sexual Harassment complaint against those Pakistans…after all, he WAS in the Army in 2002, when his horrific event of being sexually molested occurred…

    *sarc on*

    Am scratching my head on Tucker making E6/SSG in 4 years…perhaps he came in as an E3 in 1999?

    Tried several times to frame freeze and blow up documents in one of the videos that shows perhaps a DD214…now wondering if he was a member of the Alabama National Guard…don’t think he ever deployed during his 4 years…

    Dude has a serious brain hiccup…don’t know if it related to a genetic form of mental illness or because of his use of illegal drugs…

    I knew It !!!!!! The other day I saw his picture and my first thought was, yeah, this freak is a Bone Smuggler.
