Prosecutors to revoke probation after T'shooter Investigation

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Big developments have occurred after a WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Investigation. A convicted felon caught working security against a judges orders is now facing jail time after investigators who saw Troubleshooter Eric Flack's video made some startling discoveries of their own.

The Jefferson County Commonwealth's Attorney's Office made a motion to revoke Christopher Scheitlin's probation and send him to jail after a WAVE 3 Troubleshooter Investigation exposed the convicted felon was doing exactly what a judge ordered him not to.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Kristi Gray said the conditions of Scheitlin's probation were clear.

"Mainly that he not work as a security guard," Gray told Troubleshooter Eric Flack at the time of his original investigation.

But, that's what the Troubleshooter Department found him doing just weeks after a judge gave him 2 years probation for impersonating a police officer, perjury and forgery.

10 days after WAVE 3 aired the video of Scheitlin's company, Professional Link, doing security for an event at Louisville Metro's Waterfront Park, probation officers found Scheitlin with 10 security shirts and paperwork showing he had been working at a local security company, but that's not all.

Court documents reveal they also found a shirt with Scheitlin's name and the word "detective" embroidered on the chest; a red and blue dashboard light; a p/a system; 5 Kentucky Department of Corrections uniforms (where Scheitlin was briefly employed a few years ago) and 10 rounds of .45 caliber ammunition.

The ammo would also violate a previous probation granted to Scheitlin after a domestic violence conviction.

The city of Louisville signed off on the convicted felon working security for that event at Waterfront Park after codes and regulations didn't catch his name on an event application filed with the Waterfront Development Corporation.
