RUTHERFORD COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold has filed a motion to get out of jail.

His attorney filed the paperwork Thursday, asking the judge to review the decision to incarcerate the sheriff for probation violation.

The paperwork also included a request from his wife Megan that read, “It is my hope that my husband will be released from jail and that he will be permitted to return to me and our children.”

Arnold faces multiple charges, including conspiracy, fraud, and bribery, dealing with the sale of e-cigarettes inside the Rutherford County jail after Arnold listed the e-cig company as a source of income.

He was arrested on those charges earlier this year and released on bond; however, the sheriff was sent back to jail after a judge revoked that bond due to his alleged involvement in a domestic incident involving his wife this past Labor Day.

Arnold is currently behind bars in Grayson County, Kentucky, where he is expected to stay until his trial in Feb. 2017.
