WESLEY CHAPEL, FL (WFLA) - A retired Tampa police captain arrested in a fatal movie theater shooting during an argument over texting is asking an appeals court to overturn a judge's ruling denying bail and free him from jail.

The Tampa Bay Times reports that a lawyer on Curtis Reeves' legal team filed the petition asking the 2nd District Court of Appeal to allow Reeves to be released until trial on second-degree murder and aggravated battery charges.

Reeves has been in the Pasco County jail since Jan. 13, when authorities say he shot fellow theater patron Chad Ouslon at the theater in Wesley Chapel.

The bullet hit the 43-year-old Oulson in the chest and grazed the left ring finger of his wife, Nicole.

Reeves' attorneys maintain he acted in self-defense.
