Hutto started Salt Life in 2003 with a group of friends, the outlet reported. He reportedly came up with the name of the brand, which is a fishing and surfing themed company. Salt Life released a statement claiming Hutto has not been a part of the company since the group sold the brand in 2013 for roughly $40 million, ABC 13 reported.

Hutto is set to be transferred to Palm Beach County. He will appear in court on Nov. 9 and has been charged with manslaughter and possession of a firearm, according to News 4 San Antonio.
