DECATURVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The former boyfriend of the missing Holly Bobo has been arrested in Decatur County.

Authorities said Blake Barnett was arrested early Thursday morning on charges of domestic assault and kidnapping.

Details about the charges are not available.

A spokesman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Barnett's arrest was not related to Bobo's disappearance in April 2011.

A Bobo family friend told Channel 4 News that Bobo and Barnett broke up before the nursing student disappeared and the split was not amicable.

Two other men have been charged with the kidnapping and murder of Bobo, who vanished from her Decatur County home.
