Takeoff’s alleged killer, Patrick Clark, was released from jail on a $1 million bond Wednesday (Jan. 4), ABC13 reports. However, concerning the bond agreement, Clark must comply with a GPS ankle monitor until he is due to appear in court in March 2023.
Before the agreed $1 million bond, Clark’s bond was set at $2 million before his attorneys negotiated with the court to reduce the price, calling the original amount “unconstitutional.” Clark’s legal team then attempted to reduce the price to $300,000, but the court denied the motion, citing a statement that Patrick made during a phone call, an “indication that he could afford to make $1 million bail.”
ABC13 further reports that the prosecution involved with the case believed that the Migos rapper‘s alleged killer was withholding facts about his financial assets, claiming that he works multiple jobs that pay under the table, so it would be difficult to know “how much money he actually has.”
Additionally, the prosecution claimed that he would be a flight risk if not in custody or confined to a limited space. Clark’s passport was also confiscated in the bond agreement, and he will have to stay at his parent’s house in Houston without contact with Takeoff’s family.
