Father of driver in cyclist death arrested

'Two illegal assault rifles and thousands of rounds of ammunition' found at home

The father of the 18-year-old under investigation for running down a bicyclist on Foothill Road in Pleasanton has been charged by the Alameda County District Attorney's Office.

Police serving a search warrant on the Echo Court home of Cody Hall, the driver who struck and killed Diana Hersevoort on June 9, found a cache of firearms, according to reports. The warrant was related to a vehicular manslaughter investigation involving Cody Hall, according to the report.

"While serving the warrant, officers located a large gun safe containing two illegal assault rifles and thousands of rounds of ammunition," a news release from the Pleasanton Police Department said. "The safe belongs to Cody's father, Aaron Hall, who is a twice-convicted felon and is therefore prohibited from possessing any firearms."

Investigators served the warrant on June 30, two weeks after Hersevoort died. They forwarded their case to the D.A.'s office, which filed several felony charges, and police obtained a $640,000 arrest warrant for Aaron Hall.

Hall turned himself in on July 11. He was booked at the Santa Rita Jail, where he posted bond and was released.

I guess the rotten apple doesn't fall far from the dumb-a$$ redneck tree. One more repuke in jail. Too bad the punk kid had to kill someone for it to happen.
