Franklin County sheriff's Capt. Don Jones says one count is a felony alleging Walker made a death threat against his former girlfriend's family.
Walker was arrested last week. He couldn't be reached for comment because he doesn't have a listed home telephone number and court records don't show whether he has an attorney.
