MEMPHIS, Ten — The Hardeman County Sheriff's Office released a statement on the death of Brian Christiopher Lawler.
According to the statement, Lawler was arrested for a third offense DUI, revoked driver's license and felony evading arrest.
After his bond was set at $40,000, the family requested time to decide if they were going to get a public defender or a private attorney.
Because of how well known Lawler was, he was put in a cell by himself. The sheriff said they 'had no indication that he was suicidal, he was not on suicide watch.'
