On Saturday evening, the AJC reported that Cordricus Anderson, 22, had his first appearance in court and that his bond was set at just $2,000.
Here's what landed him there:
The incident began about 6 p.m. near Georgia Avenue and Martin Street, a few blocks east of Turner Field, as thousands of baseball fans were converging on the stadium for Friday night’s nearly sold-out game between the Braves and the Chicago Cubs.
"A male was chasing several people with a pump shotgun and shooting at them,” said Atlanta police spokesman Officer John Chafee. “The male was apprehended; no one was injured."
Anderson has been in and out of jail since 2009.
Even though no one was injured, Anderson's alleged crime was startling. Equally startling was that Anderson — a repeat offender — had a bond set so low.
Alas, it appears that the AJC's report was erroneous in that respect. Fulton County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Tracy Flanagan told CL today that Anderson was denied bond on all of the crimes with which he's been charged: reckless conduct, simple battery, two counts of aggravated assault, criminal damage to property and possessing a knife during the commission of a felony.
Flanagan says Anderson's next appearance in court is at 9 a.m. on August 26.
