Hillsborough man incompetent to stand trial in abduction, bank robbery

TAMPA — A bank robbery suspect who was shot by a deputy after his capture in 2007 was found Monday incompetent to stand trial.

Tracey Carl Alderman, 33, had just been released from prison in September 2007 when authorities say he took a woman and her 9-year-old son captive at a Sweetbay Supermarket in Seffner.

He's accused of forcing the woman to drive to a Suncoast Schools Credit Union and robbing a drive-through teller by claiming he had a bomb. He was captured after the mother and son escaped the car.

While in custody, he was shot after trying to wrest a gun from a Hillsborough County deputy.

Based on psychological evaluations, Circuit Judge Chet A. Tharpe ruled that Alderman should be remanded to a state hospital.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
