Former Wilco Sheriff Robert Chody surrenders on new evidence tampering charge in Javier Ambler case

Former Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody surrenders on new evidence tampering charge in Javier Ambler case


TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas — Former Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody has surrendered on a new evidence tampering charge over “Live PD” footage in the death of Javier Ambler II, according to KVUE Senior Reporter Tony Plohetski.

This third-degree felony evidence tampering charge is in Travis County, where the in-custody death of Ambler took place, in addition to a similar charge in neighboring Williamson County. Bond was set at $15,000.

This comes one day after Austin lawyer Jason Nassour was indicted in Travis County for similar evidence tampering charges. This means Chody and Nassour are now indicted in two counties related to the incident.

On Sept. 28, Nassour and former Williamson County Sheriff Robert Chody were indicted on felony evidence tampering charges after video captured in relation to Ambler's death was destroyed, according to "Live PD," which was filming with deputies at the time of the incident.
