Scrushy’s son out on bond when charged with drugs

BIRMINGHAM (AP) — Brandon Marin Scrushy, the son of imprisoned HealthSouth founder Richard Scrushy, was out of jail on bond when he was arrested earlier this week in Shelby County on drug charges.

Scrushy, 22, was among four people arrested Tuesday after members of the Shelby County Drug Enforcement Task Force executed a search warrant and found 3,000 prescription pain pills at the younger Scrushy’s home in Inverness.

On Dec. 19, Scrushy was charged in Jefferson County with possession of marijuana, possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and carrying a pistol without a permit, court records show.

He has a court appearance set Tuesday before Jefferson County Circuit Judge W. Davis Lawley.

In Shelby County, Scrushy was charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

He was being held in the Shelby County Jail in lieu of $11,000 bond.

Philip T. Camarada, 21, who authorities say was living at Scrushy’s house, and two women, Brittany Leigh Edwards, 18, and Kayla Lynn Sellers, 19, were also arrested by Shelby County authorities.

Camarada was charged with the unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance. He remained in the Shelby County Jail on Friday in lieu of $30,000 bond.

Camarada also was arrested in Shelby County May 8 on a charge of unlawful distribution of a controlled substance, for which he later pleaded guilty.

He is also facing a charge of unlawful possession of marijuana after being arrested June 28.

Edwards was charged with unlawful distribution of a controlled substance and Sellers unlawful possession of a controlled substance.
