Posted:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

A second man has been arrested in connection to the theft of a large amount of money from Vanderbilt University.

According to Vanderbilt's newspaper, Samuel Wakefield was taken into custody Wednesday and charged with theft of more than $60,000.

The 30-year-old is the domestic partner of Jason Hunt, the former Vanderbilt law school employee accused of stealing $600,000 from the university.

Hunt was arrested last Friday in Arkansas.

Wakefield and Hunt reportedly moved to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in December where they opened a nightclub.

Before leaving Nashville, Hunt was elected president of Nashville Pride, a position from which he resigned after leaving the United States.
