Tommy Wolf is seen in this provided photo.
Wolf was dressed in orange jail clothes.
Wolf only spoke to the judge to give his name. He said, "OK,” when his attorney said the two probably would see each other at the jail later.
The jail has three levels of suicide-prevention watches. Wolf is on the second level.
"We’re making additional sight checks,” said Mark Myers, a sheriff’s spokesman. "He does have clothing restrictions. He’s basically in a single cell with a mattress and he’s given a suicide-prevention gown. … It’s basically like a smock.”
Wolf has struggled at times with mental issues, according to records involving his medical license. His troubles began in 1984 during his first year in medical school when he was hospitalized for major depression, the records show.
