GALLATIN – Special Agents from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have obtained indictments for a Madison couple accused of forging medical documents.

On March 12th, at the request of 18th District Attorney General Ray Whitley, TBI Agents began investigating Camille Arendt (DOB 11-15-87) and Tyris Brown (DOB 7-7-66). During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that, on several occasions in 2017 and 2018, the couple provided falsified medical documents to the Sumner County Sheriff’s Department in an effort to secure the temporary release of Brown from the county’s jail for doctor’s appointments at two medical facilities he did not schedule, for a diagnosis he did not have.

On May 7th, the Sumner County Grand Jury returned indictments, charging Arendt and Brown with six counts each of Forgery and three counts each of Identity Theft. The indictments also charged Brown with one count of Failure to Appear. Brown was served with the additional charges today at the Sumner County Jail, where he remains incarcerated on unrelated charges. Authorities arrested Arendt today and booked her into the Sumner County Jail on $20,000 bond.
