LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - A local area attorney has been arrested and charged, according to court documents obtained by 48 News.

Defense attorney John Totten was arrested on Dec. 1 and charged with obstructing government operations and tampering with a witness.

Totten pled not guilty on Tuesday in a Limestone County court. According to the Alabama state bar, Totten can still practice law and doesn’t have any disciplinary actions on record, according to the state bar.

A circuit court judge granted a request for unopposed travel on December 15, after Totten’s attorneys asked for him to be allowed to travel with his family for the holidays.

He will be in court for arrangement on Jan. 12.
