(WMC-TV) - Supporters of the woman arrested for reportedly squatting in a multi-million dollar home are pushing for her to be freed.

Tabitha Gentry will appear in court Tuesday morning. She is currently being held on a $2 million bond after an eventful arraignment, in which she continuously interrupted the judge.

"We don't know how she's going to act once she gets inside the courtroom," said Chip Washington, Shelby County Sheriff's Office. "They'll be talking it over today and making sure they have a good understanding with the judge about what may or may not happen and be ready for whatever does happen."

Gentry is the self-proclaimed Moorish-American National accused of squatting in the lap of luxury for a week.

Other self-proclaimed Moorish-Americans are now coming to her defense and are demanding her release.

Affidavits of fact were filed with the county register's office.

"Twenty, 25 pages, 30 pages of just rambling," said Washington.

The document was CC'd to anyone and everyone including the President of the United States, the first lady, the governor, the U.S. attorney general, the district attorney, and the mayor.

"Just a tremendous amount of paperwork that they filed to try to clog up the system," said Washington. "So our county attorney's been busy kinda digesting these things."

Gentry is due in court Tuesday morning. She is supposed to have an attorney with her but she told the judge at her last appearance that she represents herself.
