Madison couple accused of forging records to get inmate released for doctor's visit


The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday a couple forged medical documents to get an inmate temporarily released from the Sumner County Jail.

The TBI said Camille Arendt, 30, and Tyris Brown, 51, provided false medical documents to the Sumner County Sheriff's Department on several occasions.

The couple faked medical documents to get Brown released from jail for doctor's appointments at two medical facilities. The TBI said he didn't schedule the appointments, and the diagnosis was false.

Arendt and Brown were indicted for six counts each of forgery and three counts each of identity theft. Brown was also charged with one count of failure to appear.

Brown remained in the Sumner County Jail with the new charges. Arendt was arrested on Wednesday and held in the Sumner County Jail on a $20,000 bond.
