Micah Sapp’s bond was revoked, at least temporarily, after he was brought back to court last month at the request of a Jones County prosecutor.

The defendant was granted bond June 27 by Superior Court Judge Hugh Wingfield.

Sapp, 22, was arrested Feb. 6, and charged with two counts of felony obstruction or hindering law enforcement officers and simple battery. His bond was set at $25,000, and the condition of his bond was that he was to be held until arrangements could be made for him to be transported directly to a private treatment facility.

Sapp was represented by attorney Jeffery Banks. At the previous bond hearing, the attorney told the court that his client has been incarcerated four months and he asked Sapp either be given bond or released.

Sapp has not been indicted on his charges due to the timing of his arrest. His Feb. 6 arrest was days after Jones County’s grand jury convened Feb. 4, and it was not scheduled to be reconvened until August.

Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway represented the state in the July 11 hearing. He pointed out that Sapp was arrested twice in Jones County and was also arrested in Bibb County.
