A graphic designer who made headlines for his role in creating a portrait of President Donald Trump has been arrested on domestic violence charges.
Shaun Chisholm, 40, was arrested Tuesday on charges of domestic violence, a third-degree felony.
He is being held in the Franklin County Jail.
Chisholms wife, Kristina Chisholic, told ABC News he was her best friend and they had been together for nearly 20 years.
She said she was surprised by the charges and wanted to clear her name.
“He’s just a guy, he’s just trying to do the best he can for her,” Kristina said.
Chicholm was working on the portrait of Trump when his wife of 20 years, Kristin Chishols, suffered a stroke.
She died the following day.
Kristin Chisolm told ABC’s Good Morning America she was shocked to learn that her husband was being charged with a felony.
“It’s just the worst thing.
I don’t even know what to say,” she said.
A spokesperson for the Franklin county sheriff’s office told ABC affiliate WKYT that the charges were a result of an investigation into domestic violence.
They added that the sheriff’s department has no plans to release any additional information at this time.
Kristina Chisolic said that after her husband’s arrest, she was able to talk to Chishoals family, who told her that their son was being taken care of.
