The police report regarding his arrest has not yet been released to the public.
Retiring Sheriff James Ross said, “Five people vying for the same office all in the same party, I really have nothing to say about that except I hope the one that wins will appreciate what we’re going to leave them.”
Kennedy is scheduled to appear in court on April 27.
