(AP) — Officials say a former Texas sheriff has been charged for the second time with evidence tampering in an investigation into the death in custody of a Black man that was filmed by a police reality TV series.

Robert Chody was arrested Thursday on the charge stemming from the destruction of video that showed Javier Ambler’s last moments in March 2019.

A spokeswoman for the Travis County sheriff’s office says Chody was booked into jail and released on a $15,000 bond. Chody lost his reelection bid for Williamson County sheriff last year after being indicted on a similar charge there. His lawyer hasn’t responded to a request for comment.
