SHAKER HEIGHTS, OH (WOIO) -

We've learned new information in the case of a Cuyahoga County judge arrested for beating and choking his wife, and we're getting a look behind bars.

Judge Lance Mason had a psych evaluation on Tuesday that could help determine if he gets out of the Shaker Heights jail on bond.

Meantime, police released jail video after a 19 Action News request. It shows the judge being brought into jail in handcuffs, police taking mug shots, and the judge changing into jail clothing.

The judge was arrested on Saturday for the assault. Police say they found a stash of weapons in his home, too, though police have said it all appeared to be items anyone can buy.

We've learned Mason had a permit to carry a concealed weapon issued out of Lake County, but that had expired. A source tells 19 Action News he had just applied for a permit from Cuyahoga County on Thursday, but that was not processed before his arrest.

Shaker Heights jail visiting hours include Tuesday evenings, so we went to try to talk to the judge. However, a clerk at the window would not allow us inside, and told us the judge had already reached his limit for visitors for the week.

A hearing could come on Wednesday for the judge to try to get out of jail on bond.

A grand jury will take up the case and consider more charges.

A spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office says it has not been decided yet if an outside prosecutor will be brought in to avoid any appearance of a conflict.
