MURFREESBORO — After a six-day silence, Sheriff Robert Arnold said he fully supports Deputy A.J. Ross’ actions in the DUI checkpoint video posted by the Libertarian party.

The video, filmed by Chris Kalbaugh as he was stopped at a Tennessee highway Patrol DUI checkpoint, showed Ross in a confrontation with Kalbaugh.

The video, Arnold said today, left out Ross’ discovery of marijuana shakings in Kalbaugh’s door handle and two marijuana seeds in his backseat.
