Matt Pitt, founder and creator of "The Basement" is still in jail tonight.

Matt Pitt, 30, bonded out of the Jefferson County jail this morning  on $15,000 bond, only to be arrested by Shelby County authorities on a probation violation. 

A warrant was issued for his arrest on Friday, on charges that he impersonated a peace officer in June. Just last year, Pitt pleaded guilty to the same crime for an incident in Shelby County.

He's being held without bond in the Shelby County Jail on a probation violation in connection with that incident.

Prior to Tuesday night's arrest, Pitt agreed to conduct an interview at Alabama's 13 about the charges he faces. During the interview, he stressed he is not guilty.

When he left Alabama's 13, Birmingham Police arrested him on 20th Street near Vulcan. According to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office, there was a struggle between Pitt and the arresting officers when he attempted to run from the police.
