Benefit cookout held for wounded Jones County deputy

A benefit cookout was held Saturday at the Calhoun Community Center for Jones County Deputy Tony Stiles.

Stiles is recovering from gunshot wounds he received early Monday morning while trying to put an end to a hostage standoff. He remains in the University of Alabama Birmingham Medical Center in critical, but stable condition.

The benefit is one of many being held to help Stiles wife Tina with expenses as she travels to Alabama to be at her husbands side.

A number of people and organizations came together to make the benefit a success. All the food was donated and all the proceeds will go directly to the Stiles.
