Hatch was arrested Tuesday for "improper contact with the public" after participating in several media interviews that were not approved by the federal Bureau of Prisons, according to his lawyer Cynthia Ribas.
While Hatch had received the bureau's permission to tape an interview with NBC's The TodayShow on Monday, he had not received permission for two additional Monday interviews with NBC's Access Hollywood syndicated entertainment news program and the network's WJAR-TV affiliate in Providence, RI.
In addition to the unapproved television interviews, Hatch also called into a Rhode Island talk radio program on WPRO-AM twice after the Today interview aired on Tuesday morning -- which he also did not receive permission for.
Ribas claims she thought the bureau's permission extended to all NBC properties when The Today Show interview was approved. However that was not the case, as a bureau lawyer told Ribas on Wednesday that federal rules consider each media outlet separate.
Hatch is currently being held at Barnstable County Sheriff's Office in Bourne, MA.
He had been serving the final few months of his 51-month sentence for tax evasion on home confinement in Newport. He was scheduled to be released on October 7.
