A former Republican candidate who had touted his "family values" was arrested Tuesday for allegedly putting a tracking device in his estranged wife's car.


David Bellow, a former candidate for Hardin County Judge and commissioner in Texas, posted a $5,000 bond Tuesday night and was released from jail, according to media outlet KFDM. He was charged with installation of an unlawful tracking device -- a Class A misdemeanor.

He faces up to a year in the county jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000 if convicted.

Bellow touted his Christian faith and family values during his run for Hardin County Judge in 2014.

"The most important thing you can know about me is that I believe in Jesus as my Lord and Savior, and I put God first in my life," he said in a statement posted on TexasGOPVote. "My parents brought me up in Christ and taught me great family values."

Along with his unsuccessfully bid for Hardin County Judge, Bellow also launched a petition seeking to ban the sale of alcohol in Hardin County. And he claimed to have "filed one of the first lawsuits against Obamacare."
