MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — A man accused of trying to kill his girlfriend’s husband after allegedly being discovered living in their Creola home is back behind bars.

In August of 2021, Amacker was arrested after a bizarre scene unfolded in Creola. Paul Burch with the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office said Amacker exchanged gunfire with Frank Reeves after being discovered in the Reeves’ home. Both Amacker and Frank Reeves were shot.
Officials said Amacker was the longtime boyfriend of Frank Reeves’ wife Tracy and she had allowed him to stay hidden in their home a few days before the shooting.
Amacker is charged with attempted murder.
