NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Nashville lawyer involved in a long-running dispute with country music singer John Rich has been charged with stalking.

According to a police affidavit, Rich filed a complaint against 36-year-old Mark Christopher Sevier in April claiming Sevier violated a restraining order.

Sevier is accused of sending Rich numerous emails. One included a photo in which Sevier was dressed in a flag and appeared to be covered in blood.

Rich, who travels frequently, told police he was worried for the safety of his wife and children. One of the emails mentions his children.

Although an arrest warrant was issued in April, Sevier was not arrested until Sunday, according to jail records. He was released on bond the same day. Sevier could not immediately be reached for comment on Tuesday.

Sevier graduated with a law degree from Vanderbilt University in 2007, but is listed as inactive-disability status by the Tennessee Board of Professional Responsibility.
