Micah Sapp was denied bond in Jones County Superior Court last week, and he will remain in jail on charges of obstruction of law enforcement officers and simple battery.

Sapp was arrested Feb. 6 by Gray Police Officer Jacob Hunnicutt, who was responding to a call pertaining to an unruly customer at a local convenience store. The defendant was a passenger in the car driven by Casey Marie Ploof, who was also arrested.

Sapp was represented in the April 18 bond hearing by attorney Jeffrey Banks, who told the court that his client has entered drug court that requires a drug test twice a week and is doing well.

He asked his client be released on bond on the condition that he stays in drug court. Banks said Sapp has not missed attending the court in six weeks.

Assistant District Attorney Gregory Bushway said Sapp was out on bond at the time of his most recent arrest. The prosecutor said the defendant punched a jailer in the face after he was seen putting a plastic bag in his mouth during a search.
