A former local political candidate and Augusta landlord has been arrested.
Robert DeMello, Jr. turned himself in to Richmond County authorities yesterday after being accused of unlawfully cutting off a tenant's utility service.
Melinda Mauney says DeMello cut off her power even though she paid her rent on time.
DeMello unsuccessfully ran for the Georgia House District 122 seat this year in the Democratic primary.
