Whatley was arrested for domestic violence in December 2014, when Auburn police officers alleged he assaulted Waits.

The charges against Whatley were later dropped, despite the arresting officers’ account of the events.

Whatley’s FCPA report for last year listed around $34,000 in non-itemized expenditures.
