Greenville attorney back in court after arrest

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, N.C. - A Greenville attorney was back in court Monday, now defending himself on charges of threatening a deputy earlier this year.

David Sutton asked a judge to modify his bond restrictions after a different judge agreed Sutton could not work under the current restrictions.
    
Last week, Sutton was charged with resisting an officer when he refused a search as he entered the courthouse.
    
Sutton says he is being harassed for trying to do his job.

"So, all of this is over me requesting charges to be dropped in a case that should've never gone forward because social services said there's no evidence," said David Sutton, attorney.

Today, Judge Alma Hinton ruled against Sutton and left his bond restrictions in place.
