The county prosecutor’s office requested a $100,000 bond and was shocked that the amount was set so low. An emergency motion has been filed to raise the bond. Arnold told the outlet they’ve had issues with the neighbor in the past and that he’s tried to throw away the kids’ bikes before.
The case was presided by Elisha V. Fink a Magistrate who is part of the judiciary in the 14A District Court in Michigan.
“Right now, he’s not even processing what happened,” he said about his son. “He doesn’t realize how close he came to not being here… but I realize it.”
