COVINGTON, KY (FOX19) - Attorney Eric Deters was arrested Monday night on a charge of failure to appear in court.

Deters was arrested around 10:30 p.m. and booked into the Kenton County jail. According to the county website, Deters was released by 12:25 a.m. Tuesday after posting a $503 bond.

He is scheduled for a court appearance at 9 a.m. Thursday for the charge.

A chain email forwarded from Deters' office suggested the court appearance may have stemmed from a parking ticket.

Deters writes to Kenton County Attorney's Office Prosecutor Chuck Vaughn in the email, "I did not intentionally not show. Had no idea."
