A Texas sheriff who starred on the controversial reality show “Live PD” was arrested Monday on evidence tampering charges in the case of a Black man who died in police custody.

Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody is accused of destroying or concealing audio and video footage that showed his deputies pursuing and using force on Javier Ambler, 40, in March 2019, according to an indictment.

The footage was captured by Live PD cameras on the night that Ambler, a former postal worker and the father of two, died following a 22-minute car chase by Williamson County deputies.
