MADISON COUNTY, N.C. — A man running for sheriff in North Carolina has been arrested after being accused of stalking a woman.

WLOS reported that Tracey DeBruhl, 38, is charged with misdemeanor stalking and second-degree trespass. He went to a woman’s home repeatedly after being told to stay away, according to an arrest warrant.

DeBruhl is running for Buncombe County sheriff on the Libertarian ticket. He isn’t the only man running for sheriff in a North Carolina county who was recently arrested.
