He was being held in the Forrest County Jail on $100,000 bond, and Warren County has a hold on him for probation violation, according to jail records.

Partridge was placed on probation and ordered to attend the Mississippi Department of Corrections substance abuse program after pleading guilty in 2009 to the 2007 armed robbery of the Vicksburg Walmart with a toy gun he stole from the store.
