A second man has been arrested in connection to the theft of a large amount of money from Vanderbilt University.
According to Vanderbilt's newspaper, Samuel Wakefield was taken into custody Wednesday and charged with theft of more than $60,000.
The 30-year-old is the domestic partner of Jason Hunt, the former Vanderbilt law school employee accused of stealing $600,000 from the university.
Hunt was arrested last Friday in Arkansas.
Wakefield and Hunt reportedly moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in December where they opened a nightclub.
Before leaving Nashville, Hunt was elected president of Nashville Pride, a position from which he resigned after leaving the United States.
