HART — A 22-year-old Hart man accused of cutting off his tether on Halloween was arraigned in 27th Circuit Court Monday, Nov. 9, on three counts of probation violation.

Brandon Scott Thrailkill, of 13 Mechanic St., was on probation for a conviction of receiving and concealing a stolen firearm, said Judge Anthony A. Monton.

The three probation violation counts arise from Thrailkill allegedly removing his tether; cutting off his tether; and leaving his home at an unauthorized time, Monton said.

Thrailkill is described as a “flight risk,” according to the probation department, and this is the fourth time he “absconded from supervision.”

Monton set Thrailkill’s bail at $20,000 cash/surety and remanded him back to the county jail.
