DEXTER, MO (KAIT) -

A southeast Missouri man was arrested following an investigation into a message he left for a parole officer.

The Stoddard County Sheriff's Department states Kevin Hicks, Jr., 35, of Bernie was arrested Friday on a warrant for tampering with a judicial officer.

The charge stems from a voice mail reportedly left for the officer by Hicks on the business phone at the Missouri Probation and Parole Office in Dexter.

Ptl. Don Donner said in a probable cause statement that he listened to the voice mail.

Derogatory statements were made about the parole officer in the message.

The voice mail ended with, "You deal with a lot of crazy mother(expletive)s and everybody ain't gonna let you pass like I will," according to the court document.

The parole officer told Donner they believed Hicks would attempt to harm them in light of the voice mail.

Hicks is in jail and is being held without bond.
