At this time, Southard will be transferred to Bell County, where he faces a felony probation revocation. 
Southard was serving six years of probation for a felony evading with a vehicle from January 2016. 
In November 2016, Southard had been arrested for breaking into a Killeen home and allegedly stealing video games, a gaming system, a speaker system and a streaming device, with his fingerprints being found at the scene. He had been arraigned at that time and held on a $50,000 bail. The gaming system was later located at a local game store, the speakers at a pawn shop.
