A federal magistrate has revoked bond for Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold after prosecutors produced audio tapes of phone calls indicating he was trying to manipulate and coerce his wife from a Kentucky jail cell where he awaits trial on public corruption charges. In one recorded phone call, Arnold appears to encourage his wife to portray herself as the aggressor during an argument between the two. But Megan Arnold says it was her husband who was the aggressor, punching her and pinning her to a bed. In other calls, Arnold says he is considering suicide and has taken her out of his will because she is not doing all she can to get him out of jail. WSMV has the story.
